  1. Terri and Candy…. and all the family….I am so sorry for your loss. I remember Jr. He was a nice guy with a whole bunch of ornery-ness to him. He was always willing to lend a hand. I will pray for all of you. May God comfort your sorrow. Hold tight to your memories!!

  2. I absolutely enjoyed meeting and getting to know Ray and Babe! My favorite memories of Ray will be the time we spend having service at the “cat house” while having a few cold ones.

    Ray thaught me that life is short, dont take anything serious and laugh often even at yourself.

    Pattie taught me to always put my best face forward and how to handle funny guys like Ray.

    I’m thankful that I was able to have one last cold one with Ray. He told me how he was excited to go to heaven to see what its like, cause you never meet anyone who’s been..

    Ray & Pattie will be missed but never forgotten.
