    Dearest Nancy, and family...
    We are so saddened to learn of Ray's passing, and send to you and yours our deepest condolences for your loss. Ray was a wonderful, kind man - I feel privileged to have known him, and will cherish many happy memories of his charm, gentle nature, sharp wit, sense of humor and his great insights (that he shared with me – many a time we had long conversations) when it came to Airedales, and terriers in general. Please know that you are in our thoughts during this difficult time, and shall continue to remain in our prayers.
    Andrea (& Skeeter) Shaw
