I was saddened to learn of Ray's passing. I attended U of R ('71) and enjoyed Ray's football exploits. Your family will be in my prayers. God Bless

Dear Ms. Easterling--I was 23 years old in 1979, fresh out of UNC journalism school and a sports editor in Laurens, SC. Ray came to the 1st Baptist Church in Clinton, SC to speak and I was there to write a story. I had the opportunity to interview him afterward, and after I'd finished my questions, it was was his turn. He asked if I'd accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. Being the cynical, lost soul that I was, I was taken aback and plenty ashamed. I fumbled for some words when a simple no would have done just fine. As embarrassed as I was, I never forgot that encounter because Ray was so bold and straightforward but at the same time very polite. It was 13 years later when I finally did gave my life to Christ, and it took Ray and four others to get me to that point. His bold witness changed my life and my family's. I was unaware of his recent suffering. My deepest sympathies go out to you and your family and I pray that God will shower you with His grace and peace.
