MAY THE LORD KEEP YOU SAFE IN HIS LOVING ARMS FOREVER Raymond,

My parents remember living across the street from you for 50 years, Susie, Sandra and I (Patricia), would be playing with your KIDS outside all the time...what a blast we all had long ago LOL!!
Much later I would be buzzing up the street in my power wheelchair and you would be driving down the street coming home and you would yell out the window Better slow down before you get a ticket! What a jokester you were.
We will miss you dear friend. Rest in Eternal Peace.

Grandpa Ray' lived across the street from my parents house since before my parents moved there over 42 years ago.

Growing up he became a good friend to my family. He used to travel pretty often and would always leave my parents the keys to his house to take the mail inside, water his plants, and turn on and off his lights so it wouldn't look alone. He would also keep an eye on our house if we were not there. I always loved seeing his RV's, 5th wheels, and his many cars he would purchase and show us. He had such a big heart, always offering our family his RV's and 5th wheels to travel.

He was always full of jokes. Every time we would see him outside he would always yell across the street to us and call us the Ugly Family' with a wink . Or sometimes he would come to our house, and we already knew his knock and his, Are you uglies Home' greeting...

My funniest memory was when I was pregnant with my older daughter, Freedom, and he was leaving out of town and as usual, our family would keep an eye on his house. Before leaving he told me that he had some ice cream in his freezer and said I could go over and eat some so it wouldn't get bad since he was going driving up to Seattle then Alaska and back down to Vegas. So...I took him up on the offer (I can never say no to ice cream) and ate one of the containers of mint chocolate chip! When he came back he teased me because he said I ate his favorite flavor and that I left him the ones he didn't like lol!! But he said I was pregnant so I was forgiven lol!!

He was a kind and loving person, and as my girls grew up he then became Grandpa Ray'. I honestly saw him like a grandpa figure myself. I knew him and had him in my life longer than the time I was given with my actual grandfathers since they both also passed years ago....

The last few times I saw him he had began to show more of the effects that his Alzheimer's was progressing and often when I would wave and he would wave back with a kinda of who are you wave', but we still loved him and my parents still checked on him along with his family and close friends who were often seen visiting him often, as he wanted to remain in his home...

I'm grateful that he was able to pass with his family by his side and that my parents and my brother were also able to talk to him/say goodbye before his time came. I feel sad that I was not able to say goodbye to him but am grateful that my memories of him will always bring a smile to my face....I am also sad that I will not be able to attend his memorial service due to my night classes that I cannot miss...
My deepest and most sincere thoughts and condolences are with his family as we all say goodbye to a wonderful man. I hope the memories you created with him give your family strength to get through this difficult time.

Goodbye Grandpa Ray...we love you!!!
Mary Lou, Donny, Freedom, and Dakota
