Dear Roe and family, I’m so sorry for Ray’s passing. He was such a big part of our Maine family. I have such fond memories of the years in Wells as we gathered and laughed together. I loved his humor and warmth. Rest In Peace my friend

I didn't know Ray as well as some of my singing friends, but what I saw was a very nice guy who loved his friends and who was loved by his friends. I'm sorry we didn't get to know each other better. My most sincere condolences to Ray's family and friends.
