Bro. Ray is a blessing. He is a man that mattered. These pass few weeks he continued to show us how to finish well. He is rejoicing today and forever in glory. Family, what great memories you have. God's comfort and blessings,

Ray will be sorely missed but always highly esteemed. Jesus is welcoming...
