Ray's passing fills me with such sadness. He was a wonderful young man, kind and gentle. My mother always said we were cousins in some way. Through Ruth, I think. I enjoyed being in school together and thought of him fondly in the years after I married and moved away. I was so pleased to read about his large family, to know he was surrounded by so many loved ones. Rest in peace.

To Annie and the Hicks family: Please accept my sincere condolences with the passing of Ray. Although I did not have the opportunity to know Ray on a personal basis, his passing is very sad. The Hicks family were a part of our church family for a very long time. God's blessings to you all. Love and prayers, Shirley Howard
