Dearest Gala and Family, it is with an extreme broken heart that I write this Beloved farewell to such a magnificent man. A man who some 60 plus years ago became friends with another referee with a young family and merged not just a fierce friendship , but an extended family; becoming God Parents to each others children and Aunt and Uncle to all us Rug rats. I respected this man so much that when I had by own children there was NO other man we ever considered and let me say that that Uncle Ray did indeed make it one of the easiest and best decisions ever and he was godfather to both of my children and both Jeremy and Jennifer adored him.Jeremy even picked His Uncle Ray for his Confirmation Sponsor. Please believe me when I say that Heaven now has 2 Great refs who will now call the shots and the fouls. Hope God likes sports? Forever in our hearts.
Please accept my condolences for the loss of your loved one. During times of grief, allow God to comfort you and your family for he truly understands what you are going through. (Psalms 72:12-14)
I was very grieved when I heard of Raymond's passing. He will be missed very much. You all have my deepest sympathy. May The God of comfort and peace be with you.
Please accept my condolences for the loss of your loved one. God assures us that there will come a victory over death.
