My sincerest sympathies to Brother Ray and my friend Ray's family. We went to school together, did science projects in grade school, built model airplanes and flew them in his backyard along with Steve Farrar..... Well Ray you finally got the best pilot's seat in the house!!

Sending my thoughts and prayers to Ray's loved ones. When thinking of Ray I see him as he was years ago at Eaton's camp, on the water, jamming with his band, going through comic books or talking about his latest, greatest gadget. Rest in peace Ray. My sympathies to you Jill & family.
