It has been an honor and a pleasure to know you. You were an inspiration to me. You used to call me "Sister Ann" and I would call you "Father Ray". I thought of you as an uncle. I enjoyed working with you. You were a former Mr. Pennsylvania, had a gift with children, were proud to bravely serve our country, proud to be a steelworker, and a person of great faith. Mr. Ray was proud of his family and always spoke of them fondly. My deepest heartfelt sympathy to you and yours. Please know you are in my prayers. He was a blessing to the many lives he touched and will never be forgotten. Until we meet again, Uncle Ray.

I’m so sorry for your loss. Ray was my new neighbor in Sabaneta, Colombia. I am also from Erie,Pa. We was homeboys. I only found out yesterday. I don’t think he was ever in a bad mood and I can only wish to be more like him.
