    Ray, I will always remember your dry sense of humor and all the fun times we had together. You were one of the good ones and my heart is heavy. Until we meet again at the pearly gates. Forever Your Lil Sis, Lynn

    I am at a loss for words. We lost a good man . He always had a good joke or sarcastic comment. Ray, you will be missed but never forgotten.

    I keep thinking that this is a sick joke or that this is a nightmare and that i will eventually wake up. But i am comming to terms with the reality that "THE GENTLE GIANT" is resting eternally. I was priveleged to be your friend. You will be missed.

    You are missed. I lost my brother back in 2008 and you filled that spot for far too short a time. I will remember you always. Rest In Peace you ol' pirate!
