Raymond Vincent Charbonneau Sr.
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.
