Raymond was a dear friend of mine when he worked at TECO. I always loved his humor and personality. He was a very wise man and I would ask him advice on stuff a lot. He always had a very wise answer. I loved that man. Royce Burt

Uncle Ray- you were a true southern gentleman. And one day I hope to have someone love me the way you loved my aunt Shirley. I will miss chatting on the swing about life lived and experiences not yet had. Your warm and caring company will be missed. I'm sorry I didn't get to see you one last time and huh your neck before you passed. I love you and I love my Aunt Shirley.

Aunt Shirley- we come from strong stock and we will get through this. I wish I could be there for you now as you were there for us when Nana passed. I love you so much and I look up to you more than you'll ever know.
