It's hard to remember a time we needed food, money, comfort or friendship that you and Cora weren't there. You were Google before it was invented...just ask...you could search and find a solution. You were known as the godfather but actually was Jimeca's. While we weren't blood related you truly were family. I'll miss you "Big Brother" we'll look out for Cora ... you keep enjoying the reunion.
Love you
Sylvia and Jimmie Sims

I worked with Raymond in the 1970s and his friendship was a treasure to me. Raymond introduced me to LeRoys' BBQ and welcomed me to his home anytime.
My condolences to you Cora and the rest of the family.
Rest in peace my brother and I will see you soon. Save me a slab.

Cora, I am so sorry to hear of Raymond's passing. We all sat through many of my hair appointments talking about the happenings of the world. Raymond did most of the talking as you well know (smile). Again, I am so sorry about your loss.
