George Ray is a man of God. We still on Earth may have an absence in our heart but George Ray has had a piece of his heart completed. He gets to spend Valentine's Day with his wife Alicia Ray in heaven dancing the days away. No cares no worry. Whom ever my Great Grandfather, George met he touched their lives. I had the honor at one point in his life to help him potentially save others. " Repent and Confess Jesus Christ to people everywhere " and this indeed he did. I have had the pleasure to know him just as many others and everyone who does know him knows he is a man of God. He is up on Heaven right now with many jewels in his holy crown. Eating a feast, and meeting some family who have also come to meet Jesus. All in all George Vernon Ray was very much loved and respected and now he shall be missed.

Daddy Ray, I will always be grateful how you and Mama accepted me into your wonderful family and made me a part of y'all right from the start. I will always remember your generosity to so many, how you helped George and I without reservation, letting our family live with you several times over the years. You were such an encouragement to us when we started our business.and never doubted that we could make it. In the earlier years of our marriage your testimony of the love, forgiveness and grace of the Lord had an impact on me and still rings in my heart. It was so sad and difficult to see you fade from the vigorous man that you were, always on the move, working in your tomato garden, tending to your roses, golfing frequently, to succumbing to illness. Your passing was bittersweet as I knew my husband had lost his remaining parent on earth but sweet in knowing that you are no longer suffering but are safe in the arms of the Savior. It was a pleasure knowing you and I look forward joining you and Mama again when we all gather together on the other side with Jesus. I love you Daddy Ray. Kiss Mama for me and tell her we will laugh again together one day in the sweet by and by.
To the Family of George,
May you find comfort in knowing that this grief is only but for awhile. I know that very soon you all will be having a big family reunion up in heaven. Your dad was one of the finest people that I have known. He lived just like he preached and I am forever thankful that our lives crossed while working for Ivy Steel.
