Dr. Bedell was a fantastic osteopath, an amazing conversationalist, and a wonderful human being. He seemed to have taught me something in every exchange I had with him, and always seemed to be seeking to learn something of me as well. He was always willing to spend an extra minute, or half hour, with me during appointments to ensure I was comfortable and my needs were met. I will carry his teachings about the nature of being human with me forever. I'm grateful for the moments I spent with him. May the joy of the time spent with him outweigh the pain of his absence in the hearts of those who's lives he has touched. God bless his spirit, and may the good Lord bless his family and friends through their grief. Thank you for everything Ray.

Shanna, We owe Ray more than we can ever express. His caring an diligence to find some comfort and overall health improvement for Nancy gave us a greatly improved quality of life that we are still able to enjoy 20 years later. We fondly remember coming to see your new house, meeting him in Evanston in the middle of the night for a pump adjustment and his overall pleasant demeanor. We are so sorry for your loss but are sure there is a very special place in heaven that was reserved for a man we truly believe is a Saint! Thank you for sharing him with us.

Shanna - Ray was a great physician and an strong advocate of pain management in a controversial field. His talents were second to none similar to his conviction to family and friends. All hale Ray !!

Dear Shanna, I was a patient of Dr. Ray for 3 years. My first appointment with him I remember being irritated because I had to wait 2 or so hours. I expected him to come in a rush the appointment because it was now their lunch time. When he came in I was in shock because he was so warm & welcoming & asked me if I had a certain pain issue. I responded yes and was surprised because I know he hadn't yet looked at my file. He told me he could tell by the way I was standing. He taught me so much in the first 20 minutes of my appt. & came across so knowledgeable & we talked & never once rushed me. For the first time I felt like I'd found someone who actually knew what they were doing! He was more concerned for his patients than himself. I was heartbroken when I found out he passed. It was after the funeral, which upset me because I would have made the drive to be there. I was closer to him than most of my family members since I saw him more! I'm deeply sorry for your loss. I know that he talked about his family with such love & pride. He never made me feel dirty about my physical condition & always reminded me that I had actual disabling medical conditions. I should not be embarrassed by it. And if anyone told me different, it was their problem not mine. I will never find another doctor/friend like him. He could make anyone feel like family. Heaven gain an angel who was taken too soon. I know Heavenly Father can see the big picture & we need to be faithful in that. May God bless you & your daughters.

My condolences to his family who was left behind. I was extremely fond of Raymond, not only was he my Doctor he made sure I was always comfortable, but what mostly stands out is his passion for justice when it came to his patients and himself. He has always been in my thoughts while I moved about, I was heading back through Utah following a life exploring travel over the last two years and thought I would see how he was, not knowing he himself was I'll. Raymond you will truly be missed by all that you touched, not limited to me, your humble friend whom you tested with compassion.

I was stunned to hear the news of Ray's passing. I only wish we hadn't put off getting together for so long.

I am very proud to have called Ray my best friend in high school.

May God bless you and your family

I am sorry to hear of Ray's passing. He was a wonderful person who loved life. He was a man of courage and persistency who stood up for what's right. It is so sad that I only learned of his passing when I browse the internet. May you rest in peace my friend. You will be missed, and I have enjoyed your company. I will always remember your sweet smile and generosity. I will also remember our days at BYU-HC. My condolences to you Shanna and to the kids. Your Friend, Robert Culas

To the Bedell family,
I'm sorry for your loss of such a great man. Dr. Bedell was my pain doctor for 4yrs, he took great care of me and always was a very caring man. He didn't like to see his patients in pain or hurting he always went above and beyond with the care of his patients. He never rushed me at a visit, he would listen to me and then suggest options to best handle my pain. My thoughts and prayers are with all of Dr. Bedell's family during this difficult time. We lost a amazing man and heaven gain a wonderful angel. Rest in peace Dr Bedell, you'll be missed by many people who's lifes you touched.

Ray made a huge positive difference in my life. He gave me hope when I despaired. He was my mentor and my friend. My heart goes out to his family and I mourn his loss and celebrate his remarkable life with you.

I learned more in the first hour I spent with Dr. Bedell than all Drs. in previous 20 years. And each hour thereafter I learned something knew, regarding the nature of pain, politics, honor, chicanery and too many topics to mention. You are very fortunate to have had a life with such an honorable man. May he RIP. K. Terry Lindquist

I'm not sure where to begin, Ray was/is an angel in my eyes. No other person looked at and cared for my father Dave the way Ray did. He was a true family friend. My father's life would no be as good as it is today with out the love and care from Ray and his family. My heart hurts for those remaining behind. Shanna and girls know that we love you and are sure sorry for the loss of a great man! Rest in Peace Ray! Love

So sorry for your loss. He was a great DR. He gave me hope and comfort that no other Dr gave me before about my condition. There isn't very many Dr's in the world that have that much knowledge and concern for their patients. He will be sorely missed.

My name is Robin Redd Clegg. I don't know if you remember me, but I remember you and Ray while at BYU- Hawaii. I remember sleeping out on the beach with you two, Shelly Killpack, and others when we didn't make it back by curfew. I will always remember Ray's wild curly hair and engaging smile. I am so sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

I first met Ray and Shanna in Michigan while he was doing his residency. Their house needed a fence so Ray used wood from pallets to build it. They had a little garden and even made some boxes for Shanna's flowers. He was ingenious that way. We had a Halloween party and we remember them showing up as character's from the wizard of Oz. I believe Ray came as Dorothy. We had many gr8 times together with them. One time they stole our 3 kids and held them for ransom. We had to bring pizza to get them back. Ray was very intelligent, and we could talk for hours debating some subject. He was active and lots of fun to be around. We love you Shanna, and we will miss him. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and the girls. Len and Darwin

I will always remember seeing him smiling at his daughters at school activities and events. He was a very proud and supporting father.
I also thought his zest for life showed through when I saw Shanna and Ray at Walmart during the past Christmas season. They were buying Christmas lights. He insisted on getting lights for the outside of the house. I could tell right then, that family and home was his greatest joy. He will be missed. May our Heavenly Father bless your family always.
