Not sure what to say?

Ray Arnett was a close friend of mine, a soldier, a politician, a businessman, a father and a genuinely good human being. He cared about life, friends and his Family. At lease one of his three children, daughter Sandy Polson and husband Timothy of Montgomery, TX, daughter Sharon Turner and husband Reggie of Edmond, OK and son Mike Arnett of Houston, TX ended up in friendly conversations that included family topics.

I met Ray when he was running the Business Incubator. We became...

Thinking of you, Dad..remembering you as a father..rest peacefully.

May your beautiful and loving memories of Uncle Ray and the wonderful life you have all shared together, bring you a lifetime of joy and laughter
