To Ray's family, I went to Woodsville High School with Ray. I cannot think of a more honest, compassionate, and friendly person. I will always remember the wonderful friendship we have had for over 55 years. May he rest in peace and may all who knew him try to be more like him. Gail Gadwah, N. Woodstock,NH

I am from Bethlehem originally but have lived in Illinois for almost 40 years after getting out of the service. I was in contact with Councilman Burton about three years ago with a question about the Council in the late 50's. My father was a Councilman at that time under Gov.Dwinell. Ray was very kind and helpful in my quest. My deepest thoughts and prayers go to the family. Very sad loss for N.H.

To the family of Ray, You must know how much Ray meant to all of us "North of Concord". Could always be counted on to protect our interests.

As a former labor leader, Ray could be counted on to do what was right for the citizens and workers of NH and never hesitated to meet with us.

He understood our possessiveness of the beauty of the north country and made it clear any challenges to it would be met straight on by him.

NH is a better place because of him and we pray that his presence is felt in the coming future of NH's legislature because there will be no replacement for his beliefs, knowledge, foresight, and defense in Concord. Someone may occupy his seat but no one can take his place.

Dear Burton Family-
I was saddened to read of Ray's passing. When I was a teen, growing up in Bridgewater, Ray encouraged me as I received various achievements and awards sending me copies of news articles and personal notes. It meant a great deal to me as a youth and has never been forgotten. When I read of his recent ill health I had planned to write to him but have missed the opportunity. I look forward to retiring back to Bridgewater in a couple of years and recognize the loss Grafton Country and New Hampshire realizes with Ray's passing. My prayers are with you all.

I am sorry for your loss. I hope you can find comfort in the words written at (Jeremiah 29:11,12)

Ray Burton, you were not only a class act, you were the only politician I have ever known to step up the plate for his citizens. You have helped me so much in all my endeavors. I challenge anyone in the NH legislature to attempt to follow your footsteps. You will be missed by us all. God bless you, your family and dearest friends
