Eveyln,Terry,Eddie & Family,
We are saddened to hear of Ray’s passing. Although we didn’t get to see each other often, I have fond memories of Ray. His pipe was the first one I ever smelled as a kid. I always enjoyed his sense of humor. I know how much Daddy enjoyed being around Ray. I recall how he made Mama laugh- that “crazy Ray Harris” she called him. I appreciate how he checked on Mom after Daddy died. Ray was a good man and one I’m proud to have had as an uncle.
Brian, Donna, Tyler, Trevor, & Jenna Harris
