So sorry to hear the news of Ray's passing but feel comfort in knowing he is in the loving arms of our Savior. Ray is forever in our hearts with the memory of him giving a horseback ride to a very small Tanya at Chadron State Park. She has remembered him often and has a special place in our hearts. May God bless all and provide comfort at this time.

It was so good to be with Ray on Wednesday before he went into the hospital a few days later. We share 5 grandkids in common and meet up at their school for their Christmas concert. He really enjoyed watching the kids. Little did we realize what the next few days would bring. Ray was a good man who loved the Lord and his family. He will be missed greatly but is enjoying his new home in Heaven.
