Edith, I am so sorry for your loss. I was out of town or I would have been there. Please know I will always love you and ask God to watch over you in these difficult days. God Bless you and your family! Claudia
Sending loving thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. May the Lord's peace surround you.
Hello Old Man, my pet name for you in your suffering days. If I were coming to see you and I wasn't there when you thought I should be, my phone would ring, ring, ring. If I were walking from my car into the nursing home, I kept you on the phone, until I walked into your room. At that time, you would simply say bye and I would say bye. We both hung up laughing. Talking about Jesus, we did talk about Jesus. I believed you hungered to be saved. After asking my preacher to visit with you and you learned how to tell if you were saved,you finally told me: The most important thing in you life was Jesus. Oh, at the times I left there crying because you hurt so bad, or I was feeling sorry for myself, I was very aware that you were saved. You loved my grandchildren, and they would come sing I'll Fly Away and you and I would sing right along. The Old Man was gone, the new man appeared. You went peacefully. I love you and I will miss you. Someday we will meet again, until then I love you so so much.
May God bless you at this time, you and your family are in my prayers. I know that you have peace in knowing Raymond is now living in a Heavenly home. Love to you

Go rest in the arms of Jesus Ray.
Go Rest in the arms of Jesus Ray.
Buddy, I will miss you so much! I will never forget the time I spent my spring break with you! I think about how you wouldn't let me watch TV at night because you said it would wake you up. I think its funny now. I used to laugh at you and I would get so excited when mom would say you were coming to stay at the house. I usually could get you to buy me anything. LOL! I want you know that I love you and I know you are home with Jesus and having a great time up there in Heaven. I know you may not remember them but my Mother and Papaw are up there and I know you have seen them please tell them I love them and I miss them. I will see you again! Love you!
Your Niece Tania
