Not sure what to say?

Just now finding this out. I met Ray when I was in banking and he use to come in and tell me the most entertaining stories, he became a friend and mentor for me in starting my own business. He will be missed greatly and I'm sad I wasn't able to tell him how much he helped me in my search for my next big leap. I truly feel like he came into my life for a brief couple of years for a reason.

I had the pleasure of meeting Ray when my students created the web site for his company Envigur 12 years ago. Since then, we remained friends and I continued to be his web and IT guy. Ray was full of life, loved jazz and traveling, and introducing people to the genre.

He was also a fighter. Every time he would get unwanted news about a treatment that didn't work, he was looking for the next treatment, the next step. He loved life so much.

I was so sorry to hear of his...

I am so very sorry to hear that Ray is not telling stories, jokes, trying to solve other people's problems with his trenchant wit and a rasher of advice. I always admired his energy and verve. He was running marathons long past when most of us had blown out our knees and joints. I was very fond of Ray Langton - -a merry prankster in the best sense. Safe travels Ray and keep the trail marked for the rest of us.
