Dear Marge, Donna, Ray, Kerri and extended Shup family, through these many years, from the days Ray ran the service station after his Navy days, until the great devotion he paid to his granddaughter and her love of horses, Ray made a mark in this world. I enjoyed our banter the times we encountered each other and it was of an easy sort, sometimes biting with good natured humor and other times thoughtful and reflective. I’m sorry he suffered so in these last years but now he is no longer tethered to this world and his pain now longer inflicts him. May our loving God provide you each with peace and comfort as you overcome the loss of your husband, father and grandfather. God bless. Keith
