|Let the memory of Allen "Ray" Grimes, Sr. be with us forever|
This memorial website was created in memory of our loved one, Allen Ray Grimes, Sr., 68, born on January 21, 1947 and passed away on October 7, 2014. We will remember him forever.
"Brother-in Law you are truly missed. Not a day passes that I don't think about how kind you were to me and how I knew you were there at all times. I know you loved the Lord and He loved you because it was shown through your daily activities. You were genuine in all ways, always eager to be of service, coming and doing when least expected, always trying to make things better for somebody else. Thank you for being a true friend to Robert; he appreciated your loving kindness also. RIP I know you are in a good and better place: your spirit will remain with me forever."
"Mr. Grimes was my second dad. His smile brightened up my day. His hugs brought a indescribable comfort. I love and miss him so much."
"Ray came into my life when we were nine, in the 4th grade. Seems like he was always there, a fifth brother who had my back. School, church, fun times, sad times. Its hard knowing I can't call him and ask for help or advice on something. His favorite line was, "you know what to do, when you gone do it". I do know he's in a better place and he truly loved the Lord, but he's sorely missed here."
"Words cannot describe how much you are missed. It is still hard to believe you are gone. I thank God that you were in my life. Happy Birthday my friend and brother. Sylvia S. Sanders"

"Hey Dad!! I know this is late but I was in class last night dad. I would love to see you, kiss your fat face, hug on you and talk to you. I miss you dearly. I miss you calling and saying hey, what you and my grand baby doing and how are y'all? Then you ask me other things but I truly miss our conversation about the sports and you giving me fatherly advise and giving me the Lord's word. HAPPY BIRTHDAY DADDY!! LOVE YOU BABY GIRL TRICE!!! Teary eyes I have dad."
"Happy birthday Uncle Ray, I find it a nice coincidence that, I put your obituary in front of the TV just Friday night. Maybe you were reminding me that your birthday was near! I am very thankful to have been giving such a compassionate and understanding uncle. I will most definitely miss having to make that phone call for whatever reason..... You were there. I miss you and will always appreciate who you are and were. Love always Felicia"
"Happy Birthday our friend and beloved! I light this candle in representation of love. There isn't a person that Allen Ray Grimes Sr. has met where he hasn't shown love in some form or fashion. When the ray of the light shines, it allows not only one, but many to see a brighter and clearer pathway. His love was that kind of light. Although the wax has melted down to its max, so many has gotten thru their pathway, and their candle that was lit can pave the way for those left behind. What an everlasting light to shine."
"Happy Birthday Uncle Ray!!! I am very pleased and honored to have had the chance to see you before you went home."
"Dad, Happy 68th Birthday! Not a day has passed and I haven’t thought of you. I know that you’re in a better place now but your thoughts, the conversations we had, the laughter, the talks about sports and so many other things are truly missed. Your legacy will live forever! Thank you for being the best father a person could ever have. Happy Birthday Daddy! Love Ray, Jr."
