Dear Kathy and the rest of the Dexter family:
Andrea and I were saddened to hear the news of Ray's death, but are so grateful to have had the wonderful privilege of getting to know both of you on our wonderful cruise together in the late summer and early autumn of 2011 on the MS Maasdam as we sailed through the St. Lawrence. Ray was so proud on the day of our tour in Cambridge of the MIT campus and Harvard Yard. We recall the wonderful meals we shared with both of you, and the delightful string quartet concerts during "happy hour" before heading for the dining room. The tribute to Ray's ministry and his amazing accomplishments in his almost nine decades are so impressive. Surely, Ray has been welcomed to his eternal reward with a "Well done, good and faithful servant!" We pray for you, Kathy, and for your family a strong sense of God's peace and gentle comfort. May the Living Lord wrap "arms of love and amazing grace" around each of you, and all of you!
~ Andrea and Erv Roorda, Mill Creek, WA
