I remember many holidays with dear sweet Uncle Ray sitting and watching It's a Wonderful Life while the James and Drestes played cards very loudly! In the summer of 1986 in Florida, while I was pregnant about six months, and bigger than a house, Uncle Ray and I were sitting by the pool and decided to have a who's belly was bigger contest. Always, the gentleman, he called it a tie! He will be missed by everyone who knew him
