Not sure what to say?

Neni was probably one of the most influential persons in my life. He exuded class! He introduced me to Jazz, classical music, working out, and forever trying to master the language...
There hasn't been a week go by in my life when I haven't thought of Neni and Toti. Words cannot express my gratitude for knowing them.

How lucky I was to know Ray in high school and our ski adventures I also worked with his dad and brother Reynaldo at Cheveron Chemical, He and my brother Jack were such goodfriends over the years. Love to you Joan and all the family.

Our sincere condolences.

Not too many years ago I used to see Ray jogging up the hill at the end of Clark Rd. Usually just as darkness was upon us. I was heading home and he was headed for one of the most beautiful nightime runs available. He always had a cheerful greeting and a smile. I'll miss seeing him.

Sorry to hear about Ray - I know he will be missed by many...

I had the good fortune to be able to work for Ray at US Peroxygen for over 10 years. During my time there, I found Ray to be a great teacher, but more importantly, a very fair man. God Bless.
