    We will dearly miss you uncle Ray, your stories, your laugh, and how you loved Florida. To my cousis Kathy, Julie, Jeff and John; please know that we feel your pain and know that your dad is now in Heaven with Grampa, Grampa, Aunt Joannie, Uncle Cedric and Uncle Albert. God has a special place in His heart for all of you.
    Romans 8:37-39 says: know in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation will be able to separate us from the love of God in Jesus Christ our Lord.
    We love and miss you all. Your family in NY

    I was always glad to talk to "Poor Ole Ray" or to just listen to his stories. I'll miss him.

    Raymond was a man with few, but many words! I met him when I was only 14 and never dreamed that he would become such an important role in my life. An ex-father-in-law he may have been to me, but a grandfather he was to my children (Shannon and Lisa).

    My sincerest heartfelt sympathy to his family and loved-ones -- In this time of pain, may memories find you comfort!
