So very sorry to hear if Ray's passing. Ray never knew a stranger, and greeted everyone with a ready smile, and his gift of gab. He will be dearly missed.

Your dad was a very wise man.  Family is the most important part of your life.  Your parents raised a beautiful family and I am sure they are so proud of what all of you have accomplished.   Sending my prayers and love to help you keep great memories alive.
