Go ye then to that higher place
That bids you whisper Peace...
Releasing souls from, 'fetters of hurt'
Echo his Soul,then Sweet -Lord
Yes; on to that Higher-Place.

...that we retain the legacy of Ray's Gourmet-Smiles... that Manifested his Enriching Acts...Peace...

(Blessings of Peace and Fortitude on the family... :-( only just now finding out M.W.Hepburn))

Ray and I graduated together from St. John's College in Nassau Bahamas. He was always smiling and dancing when ever time permitted. Ray was very sociable and hosted several of our '78 alumnas events. He was famous for the drinks he made for us from scratch.
I will certainly miss him.
Sleep in peace my brother.
I love you but Jesus loves you best.

My dear cousin Ray. When I got the call 4am that morning, I was heart broken. I just could not believe that you had left us. Your infectious smile and your willingness to help anyone is so remarkable. I know that you had a taste for the finer thing in life and you executed it in fine form. Ray did it his way.

I will miss you, my genius cousin because you were my go to guy when I need help and you made yourself available to me every time. May your soul rest in peace.

The magnetic personality and warm spirit of Raymond welcomed me to Marina Grande. His entertaining personality together with his laugh was infectious. He hosted a luncheon as recently as 2 weeks ago and treated us as royalty - he was a star......
My condolences to his parents and all those that loved him. He will always live in your heart.
