    I am so sorry to hear of Ray’s passing. Ray & I were such good friends all through Jr. & Sr. High School. I have so many fond memories of our school days together. He was truly one of the nicest people I had ever met & I always leaned on him for spiritual guidance. I want to express my prayers to his family.
