I was just going to contact Ray to ask him about his student films at UCLA, and was shocked to learn of his recent passing.

Deborah and I were so fortunate to be neighbors with Dr. Fielding. Over the years we shared meals, drinks, lots of laughs and listening to "Dr. Ray's" amazing stories. He was a wonderful man, we miss him dearly.

Dr. Fielding was a man of great cultural refinement who always treated me with the utmost courtesy. It is an honor to have been his friend.

I am so very sorry for your loss. May the God of comfort be with you in your time of need.
