I was lucky enough to meet Ray while working at MPC. We always kept in touch after our layoff together all these years now. I was just shocked to hear of his sudden passing.

May the peace of Christ be with him and his family during this most difficult time.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family, Gisela.
