Dear Ann and family,
Wish we'd've been there to hug you at the time as you know your mother was (in spirit). Thinking of all of you in prayer and may he rest in peace. Tho we didn't know him personally, I just remember him as always being in the midst of things helping out (parish festivals etc. etc. etc.). Love to all.

I'm so sorry to hear about Ray. He was always good to me and always called on me to proctor the testing for the Carpenters. He was always so funny and was a genuinely good person. Very kind, thoughtful and considerate. I'm very, very sad to know he's not here but his memory remains. My deepest condolences to the family. You were a good man Ray! One of the best.

I too remember Ray from a very long time ago when Emily was in school. He had became good friends with my son-in-law Tony Garland. I always felt so good when I stood next to him because he also was short.So so sorry about his passing.Prayers to his family...
