I had the pleasure of meeting Ray about a year and a half ago. Within days we became friends. He has told me some funny stories and some sad stories. We made each other laugh on a daily basis. He was a diamond in the rough. Rest in peace Ray you’ll be missed. Tina - altercare of Louisville

I have known Ray almost my entire life. He bought my dad's farm when my dad was told he could not farm anymore. I knew his good times and his sad times. May he rest in peace. God bless him.
