To the Parra Family:
It is with a deep heaviness in my heart that I have become aware of Raymond's passing. He has entered my thoughts from time to time since I last saw him four years ago. Just today, my memory of him prompted a search...and the sad discovery of his passing. I will always remember his kind smile, warm handshake, and sincere demeanor. He was a gem of a person - a gentle, wonderful man. I am truly honored to have had the opportunity to know and care for him; I am also so sorry that I was unaware of your family's loss of Raymond and his son Patrick until now. Your family will remain in my thoughts always.
