Our movement out of state never
separated our wonderful memories
of Jeannie and Ray from our mind.
A champion among Men. A great
role model for Boys. Must be a special member of the heavenly choir. We share your grief and pray
that God will send His Holy Spirit to
fill that emptiness we all feel..

I am so saddened to hear of Ray's passing. You both were so kind to me. I will always remember Ray and Teddy working as housekeepers during their college years. Something tells me their skills were lost when they got a wife. Ray was such a blessing to all who knew him. I know you have many memories that will help you through the next days. I will be in touch. My prayers are with you and your children. We have lost a great friend and joyful person. Love, Anne Marie (Crowe) Sheeran.

We stumble for words, trying pathetically and desperatly to ease your pain and in so doing, somehow trying to reduce our own; it doesn't seem to work.
Yet, we want to convey to you that we are so honored that Ray's life touched ours for so many years. He was a wonderful example of a life well lived.
We feel so lucky to have known him.
Jeanne, you and Ray complimented each other beautifully.
As you grieve know that we grieve with you.
Our love and our prayers to all the family.

Dear Jeanne and Family,

I had the priviledge of working with Ray for many years at the Research Foundation. He was a very cheerful guy who had a kind word and smile for everyone. We will miss his presence. My deepest condolences and sympathy to all of you during this very difficult time. Warmly, Louise Griffin
