Dear family of Mr. Raabe,
I knew him from visiting my mom in the nursing home. He was always quoting scriptures from the Bible. And we would sing hymns while waiting for dinner. He was a bright spot in the dismal place called the nursing home. Praise God he is with the Lord!
My sincere condolences,
a friend,
Sharon Martinez
