“No person is ever truly alone. Those who live no more, whom we loved, echo still within our thoughts, our words, our hearts. And what they did and whom they were, becomes a part of all that we are, Forever”.

Judy, my thoughts and prayers are always with you. Love you.

The Lord has taught us to love our neighbors as we would love ourselves. Ray & Judith have been wonderful neighbors and I know God welcomed Ray home with opened arms as he said, “Well done good and faithful servant”.

You are all in my thoughts and prayers. I hope you will allow God to hold and comfort you together as a family during this time of sorrow and grief.
