Dear Hansen Family, My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Had the pleasure of knowing Ray for about 5 yrs at the Senior Center in Williamston. After everyone had said the pledge, he would sit down and say table 1, so that he could be excused for lunch😊. Never could thank him enough for his service😍. Was a great man and friend. Tara 🙏😻
