  4. Dear Jill and family,
    There wasn’t much time to really get to know Ray, but the little bit of time I did have was rewarding. I am happy to have met such a gentle caring person as Ray. No matter how aweful Ray felt, he was always positive. With the short time Ray had at Sundance on the Green I hope he enjoyed his time with us. We will miss his smile and great attidtude. Jill, if I can help you in any way, please let me know.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

  7. Dear Jill and Family,

    We have many happy memories of Ray, starting with our first Halloween on Mapleford Road, he was taking the children around, and all he wanted was a beer – much amusement and laughter.

    Please know we feel for you and your family.

    Sincerely,

    Brian and Sylvia Langton
