Ray and I met in 1971 and from that day forward we became life long friends. I suppose I can say many good things about Ray but everyone that knew him already knows he was special in every life he touched. I think about Ray often and his family. I miss Ray and I miss the good 'ol days that we lived. So many good memories. :) Thank you my friend.

I have had the extreme honor of knowing Ray for the past 7 years, riding with him in escorts and standing a flag line, be it freezing cold or blistering heat. I always looked up to and respected his quite resolve, dignity and the patriotism he brought with him.Raymond, you will be missed but never forgotten. Ride-in-Peace.

Grandpa, I've sat here for countless hours staring at the computer screen, typing, deleting, and searching for the perfect words to express how much you mean to me. But in actuality there are no perfect words. I've had 31 years of memories with you and there's no way I could put all of that in a couple paragraphs. Even though I'm heartbroken right now, I know you wouldn't want me to sit here crying and mourning your loss. So I will just say this- You've always been my Superman and that will never change... you just are protecting me from up in heaven now! I love you forever and always, Miss Megan
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

One of the greatest men I know, is my Grandfather. The world is a little darker without him in it, without a doubt. However, his legacy will live in on the people who's lives he's touched. I love you Grandpa, and I'm glad you're healthy and with grandma again. Can't wait to see you again someday.

Don't mourn for me, I'm free The struggle is finally finished My spirit's free, my body's at rest Yet I am not diminished I simply moved to that heavenly phase Of God's almighty plan Having completed my trials of life In heaven's peace in where I stand Untouched by the cancer that assailed my body And unaffected by the illness' rage I am grateful that my struggle is finally over and thatI moved beyond such a difficult stage Now reunited and surrounded by my loved ones who've previously passed I am watching over you with the deepest love and affection With the serenity and peace, I found in heaven I am so grateful for the love that deepened as you patiently cared for me The love was so strong; I thought it never could expandYet it grew tenderer in the 'midst of my suffering and grief... Our thoughts and prayers are with you,Robert, Jeanette Hurst and Brenda Rollins
