To my Dear Aunt and Cousins I am sorry for your loss. May warm memories comfort you during this most difficult time. Jim and I, were of course talking this week about how our Uncle Ray spent alot of time with us. To quote Jim, "We are better people for it". We feel some of the best parts of us are from him. We are indeed fortunate nephews. Love Dave
