Dearest Johanna, We really miss both you and Ray. You both were a team together. We will never forget the giving and loving person Ray was. When we told Adele about Ray, she asked, Who is that? When we reminded her of how Ray found her on the way to the beach at only 3 or 4 years old, she remembered him. To me, Ray had a wit and jovial outlook on life that made the hardships easier to swallow. Any time Theresa and I spend on dinners or movies with both of you were well spent and memorable. Ray just had a way of making time fly and all of us laugh. We won't forget him as a caring and loving guy with a zest for life and friends. Love, Bob and Theresa

Dear Johanna,

We were so sorry to hear of Ray's passing. We have many happy memories of the time we spent in South Daytona, and all the fun we shared at the "Sea Garden".

Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

With love,
Barbara & Dieter

Johanna dearest,
You know how much we loved Jackson. We love you just as much. He and my Dad were the best of friends and were blessed to know each other. May Jackson rest in peace knowing he left our hearts more loving because of him. You loved him and stood by his side every day, right to the end. God bless you and keep you in the palm of His hands.
Our love and prayers,
Cheryl and Randy
