|Let the memory of Ray be with us forever|
"Happy birthday Grandpa"
"My gpa was a man of very few words..but when he spoke you listened..plus he more than made up for it by the example he lived by. I miss him. I am forever grateful and comforted by the simple fact. The last summer I came down before he passed. We exchanged some private words and told each other how much we lived each other. Gone but never forgotten.
He passed18 yrs n a day after my maternal gpa passed. I know each are sharing a cup of coffee in Heaven while each discusses their time in the military. Maternal Army n of course he in the Air Force."
"I would like to tell you thank you Ray. You do not know me but it is because of you and your daughter Martha that I have my wonderful husband Matthew. Everything his does in his life he remembers all the things you taught him and he holds it all near to his heart. With your help he turned into an outstanding man who is a wonderful husband and father. Thank you."
