To the Charbonneau family,
Sorry to hear about your Dad. Our parents had such fond memories of both yout parents. Hard to believe none of them are with us any longer.

My condolences to your family. I have many fond memories of all of you from the years we lived next door in Manhasset. Your dad gave me an old dial phone that I enjoyed taking apart to explore its inner workings. I treasure the fun times we all had back on Hillcrest Ave. My sisters Mary Beth and Barb also send their love.
We regrat that we not aware of the passing of Ray in a timely fashion. How ever it is with sympathy to you and your family. You are in many heartfelt thoughts at this difficult time.

Ray was a wonderful friend that we kept in touch all those years after he left NY Telephone. He and wife Joan were so special to us. Even when he was so ill, he remained optomistic and inspiring. We will miss him and our telephone chats-but know he is in a better place. We offer our prayers for you and your family-Peggy and John Clavin
Dear Beth, John and family, We are so sorry for the loss of your dad. You and your family are in our prayers. John and Karen Ullman
We met Ray through St. Paul Church in Greensboro and the Hibernians. He always had a warm greeting and a friendly smile that was true to his Irish heritage. We enjoyed the time we spent with him at both church and social activities. Be assured that Ray has joined Joan and his son Ray Jr. and a fine Irish celebration is being held in heaven. Our condolences to the family and may God comfort you in your time of sorrow.
I will never forget your father or mother. Ray and Joan were among the first people to greet me when I joined St. Paul the Apostle in Greensboro, NC. Ray was warmhearted, witty and loving as was Joan. My condolences on your loss and know that you all will be lifted in prayer. May God bless you all and know that the will bring you through this grief and loss with hope and peace in your hearts.
Ray- A dear friend! Although our paths didn't cross until we met at St. Paul the Apostle Church in Greensboro, we quickly discovered that we shared much in common: growing up in NYC, years on Long Island,the rigors and rewards of a Jesuit education,our love for our Irish heritage that caused us to become Hibernian Brothers,a good joke to hear and pass along and a good Irish song to sing together (Ray had the better voice), and especially the joys of Family Life!! Ray fought the good fight and ran the good race! Ray, as you join the Communion of Saints pray for us. Janie and I offer our prayers and sympathy to all the Charbonneau Family members at this time. God Bless you all!
My thoughts and prayers go out to family and friends of Raymond. Death is never easy but the God of all comfort will be with you during this difficult time.
