I am so sorry you lost your father so soon. He is with your brother now and they will be watching over you always.
I love you Uncle Ray! RIP
Sue, Mel, Brandy and families:
Earl and I loved Ray so much. He was a pleasure to know, and we felt so honored to be treated as family. We will always remember the many camping trips, bonfires, cookouts, and other good times! He was a gentle person with a wonderful sense of humor. He was hardworking, and loved his family in such a deep and evident way.
Until we meet again, Ray. Thank you for the love and friendship that you shared with Earl and I for the last 27+ years. We will miss you, but will see you in your children and grandchildren!
2 Corinthians 5:8 has always brought me encouragement and comfort...I hope you feel the same. To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord (paraphrased). I picture the enormous grins and laughter as Ray was reunited with Michael and Jamey in God's presence, followed by other loved ones that have gone before. No more pain, no more sorrow. Just joy and peace forever.

Sue, Mel, Brandy,
I am so sorry to hear of Ray's passing. He was a Father figure to me. He always had a gentle word when I was down and a butt kickin for me when I needed it. Ray was a good man and an even better Father and husband. He loved all of you in a way only a Father and Husband can Love. I saw that growing up. He showed me and all of the guys how to Love as a Father and Hisband for that I am so very thankful. I was blessed and honored to have known your husband and father. Thank you all for sharing him with me. Godspeed Ray, Godspeed. I look forward to seeing you again one day. Until then, thank you for showing me how to be a good Husband and Father.
