For all that you did in your life for me and all of us, I thank you. You were so many things to so many people. I know my life will be forever changed, but you will be in my heart forever.
I love you,
“Your oldest daughter”
Ray was my co-worker for several years. He was a great worker and could do most anything. When something seemed impossible, he’d find a way to do it.
If you needed how to fix your car, he could tell you how. Need a little gadget made for something, he could do it.
Over the years Ray became a very cherished friend. He was like someone I had known all my life.
Just a down to earth sort of person. He always had a smile and a friendly greeting to every one he met.
I’ll bet he’s already trying to find something to tinker with in Heaven.
