  2. I am sorry for your loss. In a way it is my loss as well.

    I met Ray when I was 12 tears old and he became more than a friend, rather a father figure and mentor. I will no forget him. It’s too bad that circumstances caused us to go different paths.
    I believe that you were good for Ray, thank you.
