God saw you getting tired,and a cure was not to be.So He put His arms around you and whispered"Come to ME". With tearful eyes we watched you,and saw you pass away. Although we love you dearly,we could not make you stay.A golden heart stopped beating,hard working hands at rest.God broke our hearts

School time

I remember going to PS 13 to pick up the kids & Ray was always there 45 minutes early. When I asked him why so early ? He said "so when the baby gets out she can see my truck & wont be scared thinking I'm not here". Shannon wouldnt be afraid , it was him who was afraid. He wanted to make sure she got home safe.Welll he did that for 6 years. Shannon ( the baby ) was in 5th grade & he still made sure she got home safe, lol. Shannon he loved you so much in life that I'm sure he is still watching over you in the after life. A bond like that can never be broken.
