Linda, Sheree, Raelyn and the rest of our family - I am so very sorry for losing Ray. He's always held a special place in my heart for being my Godfather. I am only sorry that our paths did not cross more often. I'm so thankful to Linda, Doris and Lloyd for getting him to Bob's house during the Thanksgiving holidays and I was able to visit with him then. That will always remain very special to me. My love to all.

Sorry to hear of Ray's passing. He was a fine man and a good shooting companion. We traveled together for years to attend Pistol Matches both in the Gulf South and at Camp Perry, Ohio. I enjoyed his company. Condolences to Ray's family.

I knew Ray and his family when we were kids and attended Grace Episcopal Church. We renewed our acquaintance when he became Greater New Orleans Senior Olympics first Shooting coordinator. He was a man of many talents and morals. My condolences to his family. Bernice Gardner Bordelon and GNO Senior Olympic Board
