Ray should also be remembered for his love of horses, Arabian horses in particular. He would come alive and glow in their presence. We miss him and Dorothy as former neighbors for many years on Cherryvale in Boulder where they were among the first residents building houses. Sometimes sadly, all things come to an end, and so it is with youth and eventually with life. He is now with Dorothy and his beloved horses.
