Miss you and Ray as usual. Went to Corpus and thought of you. We had some good times there. Life moves on but without you. I know you had to go, I wanted to be there when you left. Just as you did with Mother. A regret I will have forever. Forgive me. Love your son

I miss you so but I am not sad. I am only sad for Ray. Miss our phone calls and calling you during the Texas games. Like the old saying goes; All the important things in life are free, such as a Father's love for his son. You certainly gave me yours.

Thank you for all you have done for me and Ray. You continiue to give even after your death. I miss you but I know we had to part. Your stay to help me endure Ray's death was your best gift. Do not know what I would have done. It's hard to realize the two most important men in my life are gone. Called Danny and Richard. You would be proud. I miss you, Randy your son

About to head out to California again. Just working on your house. You certainly took care of Donna and I (even after you passed on). It was what you always said you would do. I will enter the World Series of Poker with some of the money you left. I remember the year you sponsored me. If I do well, I know you will be proud. I just wish you were there to tell me. My whole life, I only wanted to make you proud. I remember everytime you said so. Hold on tight to Ray for me. I hope you kicked his butt for buying that motorcycle. You said you would then give him a big hug! I miss you both.

The proud son of Vernon Ray Griffin and father of Ray Clayton Griffin!

I almost dialed your number thinking you would answer. Wanted to tell you something that was very unimportant. Just as we always did. All the times you told me I did not have to call every day,I always said one day you would not be here has come. I miss you so.I hope you and Ray have found each other. Love you

You were my father, mentor, confidante, and best friend. I shall miss you and our phone calls. You are with Mom, Ray, MaMa and PaPa. I will always follow your example and advice. Thank you for staying here to help me with Ray's death. Texas games will never be the same. I was so lucky to have you as a Father.

Your loving son Randy

Ray Griffin was a great friend and co-worker to whom I learned some valuable lessons of televsion ad sales and life! To Randy Griffin to which I played tennis, because Ray said I would be too easy to beat on the golf course! Your dad was the best!

In the mid-80s, I had the pleasure of working with Ray. Not only was he a kind man, he was respected by everyone who knew him. Having Ray in the office, gave us all confidence the day would be okay. I am very thankful for the workdays we spent together and will always strive show the kindness he showed me.

It was my privilege to work with Ray at KXAN. He had a great love of life, and the gifts of humor and humility. He worked at his trade with diligence and integrity, and he treated everyone he encountered with kindness. Ray lived life well and long - an exemplary life worth celebrating and emulating. Rest in peace.

Randy, I just heard about Ray's passing and I am very sad to hear the news. Ray was a great guy and I loved him dearly.

When I first started working at KXAN in 1986 he quickly
took me under his wing and showed me the ropes. He was the nicest person.

He and Margaret were always asking me when I was going to meet someone and get married, so when I did they were at the top of the guest list.

I feel honored to have known him and I will always remember him with great fondness.

My sincere condolences to you and your family

My sincere condolences to the Griffin family. I worked with Ray at KXAN in the late 80's and remember his sense of humor. May your wonderful memories of Ray carry you through this difficult time. Lyndean Phinney

My memories of Ray are vivid and fond. We had tremendous fun at KXAN. We used to tease him all the time about the short sleeve shirts he'd wear or how he'd find a ridiculous way to beat us in golf. He was a great salesperson and a dear, loyal and funny guy. I will miss his wit and class. God Bless you Ray and your entire family.

Randy, I am thinking of you and your family with caring thoughts and prayers at this time of great sorrow.

So sorry to hear of Ray's passing. When I came to work at KXAN in 1986 I found Ray the nicest guy there. And what a salesman! When they needed a few extra sales...just send Ray out, check with his regulars and sll out that program. But personally he was a very nice guy.

Randy, I was very saddended to hear that your Father had passed away. Please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers. I know you will greatly miss him to share the ups and downs of the longhorns, but you can always cherish the memories of the great relationship you guys enjoyed!

Dear Randy, please accept my sincerest condolences to you and your family over your Father's passing. I remember him vividly at the Paramount Theater (the site of Beth's and my first date). We would always look for him, hoping that he might let us in free. I remember being at your house some afternoons watching you guys play Poker. Bloomquist and you would always insist on playing Johnny Cash. It was my first real taste of Country Music and I didn't like it. If I only had known then how great he was. I was always a late learner. Anyway, your Dad would come home on occasion while we were there. He was always so friendly and jovial. You could tell he really enjoyed you having your friends over. Those were great times with great friends Randy. Savor those great times you had with your Dad, for they were special. Best, Woffie

Randy,

I just got the news from Johnny B. So very sorry to hear of Dad's passing, but what a great story of a life well lived. Know now where you got that smile and laugh. What fun we had "going to the movies." I'll see you soon. Peace be with you.
