I never got to spend a lot of time with you as a child. The memories and pictures that I have as a child are as priceless as you. When my children were little I'd tell them grandpa was on his way excitement grew . No calming them down till they were wrapped in your loving arm. You may not be here on earth but you are in each of our hearts. You were blessed while on earth and now in heaven. I LOVE YOU DEARLY DAD
I love all my brothers and sisters, and my step mother Lucy.
One day I'll get to meet more of my beautiful family.
Prayers to all

The one thing I and the other nieces will always remember is each one of us was always his favorite niece. So when we would call he would ask who was calling and we would say your favorite niece. So then we would wait to see if he recognized the voice. Uncle Ray was always fun. I recently was looking at the photo album from my moms family and found Halloween pictures which each one would work hard to create a great costume. I will attach one of him and aunt Lucy. He will be missed .

I am so saddened by the loss of my Uncle Ray. He was a very special person to me. I can remember how excited all of us kids were when mom would say Uncle Ray and Aunt Lucy were coming for a visit. Of course they brought my cousins along as they were born. He was so funny so much of the time, and oh the stories he would tell. We all were blessed to have him and Aunt Lucy as a part of our family. I will miss him greatly. My love goes out to Aunt Lucy, Jean, Danny and Angela. You had a very special husband and father, and you still do, as he will be in your hearts forever. Cousin Jack
