Dear Cornelia, we are still shocked by the sad news of Ray's passing away. We would like to express our heartfeld condolences to you, dear Cornelia.
With Ray we lost a wonderful friend and knowledgeable conversation. We often shared the same opinions about art and world affairs. Since our first Meeting 1988 we visited each other, discussed and painted together - wonderful memories. We are very thankful. Ray was not only classically educated and intelligent, but also warmhearted and...

Dear Cornelia, I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your beloved Ray. Such a beautiful couple, contributing so much to the world.

One of these fine days I will be back in the Hudson Valley and look forward to seeing you. In the meantime, I am sending prayers and love your way, Patricia "Patti" Martin

so sorry to hear of the passing of Raymond. keep the faith. my condolences. Franc Palaia

A loving tribute indeed. We will miss him but his notable achievements will live on.

I've was fortunate to 'know' Ray for over 20 years though we never met. He helped a young writer keep going and became a good friend. His humor and warm is missed every day.

He talked often of Cornelia until she, too, felt like a friend. The world is richer for her being in it.

There is always a place at my campfire for you, Cornelia.

Prayers for the Steiner family. Mr. Steiner was a wonderful teacher.
