Very sad about Ray. Still much too young to be gone. I didn't see him much, but whenever I ran into him he was always laughing and cutting up about something. He always had a smile on his face. He will definitely be missed by everyone who knew him.

That smile, that boisterous laugh, the optimism and your incredibly open heart to this community and your Country will be missed by all who knew you, Eric. May every ride in Heaven be magnificent!

Our thoughts are with you at this most difficult time. One of our most favorite quotes come from Dr. Seuss: "Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened."
