To Raymond and family: So sorry to hear of your loss. Raymond and his family were such good neighbors many years ago when he was very young and I was a new inexperienced farm wife.  Raymond and Iva were, to me, a wonderful example of a very happy couple. Take care and rejoice in knowing that her life was happy and fulfilled.
