    My sincere condolences especially to Michaela and all other family and friends of Ray.

    “Death leaves a heartache that no one can heal, love leaves memories no one can steal.” It is good to know that death is not the end. The Creator, has promised that our precious dear ones will have the opportunity to live again, in paradise. Psalm 37:29 tells us: “The righteous themselves will possess the earth, and they will reside forever upon it.” So we look forward to seeing Ray again in paradise. In the mean time we will draw close to the Creator and his son Jesus Christ in prayer, and the Bible promises that “he himself will sustain you” – Psalm 55:22

    A life well loved, a man well loved. A father, a brother, a son, an uncle, a nephew, a friend and confidante. The place where the laughter started and the tears dried. The father who so loved his daughter, always thought of, will be forever missed.

    My thoughts are with your family as I write this. I have known Ray for a great many years and just wanted to express how much I thought of him. Ray was one of the kindest people I have ever met. I have known him for about 30 years and he always had a kind thought for everyone and would do anything he could for anyone. The world lost a great friend,father,son, dad any many more things to many people, and heaven gained one of the best angels they will ever get. R.I.P Ray.

    My deepest sympathies to Michaela and family. I only knew Ray and Michaela for a few years when they lived near us and she attended the same class with my youngest son. I remember Ray had such a great smile and was such a wonderful Mom and Dad to Michaela. She is such a sweet girl. I hope she may find comfort and strenght in her families love at such a difficult time.
    God bless.
