Enjoyed a wonderful day at church today. I took my grand daughter, Trinity. The weather was cold, brisk with just enough snow to hinder the spirit but not the soul. Today will be our final interaction via email. I'll continue to share your love and unselfish gestures where ever I go. And yes I'm the daughter of Jake Ray, so from time to time he too shall have his say. I'm cut from the cloth of you both. I will always be grateful for having a father that stood for his wife and children dignity and rights as strong and upright heritage of a deep south that carried wounds to deep for any of his heirs to comprehend. And for a Mother that was was strong in her faith but that believe also in having the respect and honor of who she was and what she stood for. Thank you both for demonstrating that it is perfectly ok to demand dignity respect and honor by demonstrating it in your everyday lives. I'm happy you are all together once again. I will visit you all on Memorial Day 2014 celebration. Until we meet again keep the gates of Heaven open and watch over us all as we continue our journey in this ole world. Hugs and kisses your daughter, friend and most of all proud offspring. Ruthie.
