Dear Dolores, Debbie and the whole Family,
I am so sorry for your loss and I will say my prayers for all of you at this most difficult time. Ray always had a smile for me growing up and was kind in every way imaginable! He will be deeply missed and may your fondest memories bring you comfort.
All my love, Rolonde

Dear Dolores and family.
It was with great sadness that I learned today of Ray’s passing. He was an inspiration to us in Little League – always striving for the best qualities in coaches, umpires and players. He will certainly be missed.
Donald Winchester

My mind often drifts back to the wonderful times that my wife, Laurel, and myself “chummed around” with Ray and Delores Williams. I feel fortunate to have met Ray, a warm, kind, honest man. So many memories in baseball and friendship.
My condolences to the Williams family.
Ralph W Schofield, Houston
