Let the memory of Raymond be with us forever

This memorial website was created in memory of our loved one, Raymond Lewis Reffitt III, 18, born on April 23, 1976 and passed away on May 7, 1994. We will remember him forever.


Death is nothing at all. 
I have only slipped away into the next room.
Whatever we were to each other, that we are still. 

Call me by my old familiar name, 
Speak to me in the easy way which you always used.
Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes we enjoyed together. 
Play, smile, think of me, pray for me. 

Let my name be the household word that it always was. 
Let it be spoken without effort. 
Life means all that it ever meant. 
It is the same as it ever was; there is absolutely unbroken continuity.

Why should I be out of your mind because I am out of your sight? 
I am but waiting for you, for an interval, 
Somewhere very near, just around the corner.

All is well, nothing is past, nothing is lost. 
One brief moment and all will be as it was before, 
Only better, infinitely happier and forever, 
As we will all be one together with Christ.
See you in Heaven My son, My friend, Miss you!

As I sit here today! I can honestly say how much you have changed my life…You taught me to smile, to laugh and to be strong in any of life’s challenges…So many times I have come to a bump in the road, and I think how can I get pass it?…But I just think of you Ray, your compassion, spirit and your infectious smile and I make it THROUGH! You were for sure one of God’s Walking Angels…We all struggle to find our purpose and way in this life, to understand our trials and tribulations THANKS FOR MAKING MY JOURNEY CLEARER AND SHARING YOUR LIFE WITH ME… Sure glad you were born to me on April 23, 1976 SEE YOU LATER!
