Ray was a dear friend and we admired his courage during his life’s journey and his devotion to family and friends. We shared lots of quality times with Ray and Ruth when they were in Florida. We visited them in North Carolina each time we drove up North to visit our family. We think of them often and will continue to do so during our Journey. God bless you Ray.
