    Dad, I can’t believe I won’t ever see your sweet face again. I won’t ever hear your laugh again or hear you say”behave yourself”. You were always my biggest fan, no matter what I did, right or wrong, you were always right there praising me or defending me. You gave complete unconditional love. The way you loved our Mom, and she you, shows that true love does exist. I love you Daddy ❤️ ❤️SHINE ON✨✨✨✨

    I’ve known Ray and his wonderful family for some 15 years. From the first time we met, he immediately impressed me as a man who loved his wife and his family above all else. He was a Vietnam Veteran and a proud American Patriot. I was privileged to spend many wonderful times with him and his family. He was always the happiest when he was surrounded by his loving, doting, wife; his son and loving daughter, and his Grandchildren and Great Grandchildren. I’ll add that for the last dozen years he was seldom far from his most faithful K 9 companion, Skeeter. They were virtually inseparable. My fondest memories will always be of his gregarious manner and wonderful laugh when he heard a joke that brought a huge laugh from the absolute love of his life, his sweet wife, Thekla. Ray was not an educated man, but a very intelligent man…a very capable man. He knew a LOT about a LOT…and was a very skilled mechanic and carpenter, electrician, plumber, tile installer, and more. Evidence of his skills are on display throughout his beautiful home. Ray was richly blessed by sharing a 63 year love affair with the love of his life, Thekla. Their relationship epitomized the real meaning of commitment. Ray will be missed by everyone who knew him…and I’m privileged to have known him and loved him. Rest In Peace my friend. Thank you for your Service to our Country and thank you for your friendship.
