Our sincere sympathy and love is extended to the family of Ray. We were saddened to hear of his passing. There could never be a finer Christian couple as Ray and Janice. The world is a far better place for having him be a part of life and he will be missed by all. We will continue to lift the family in prayer as you grieve and celebrate his home going.
