  2. Sending prayers, blessings and hugs to your family. I always found Ray to be a jolly and caring man. He will be missed.

  3. Dear Shirley and all your amazing family, Ray has left a legacy of stories and experiences to be passed down and cherished through the generations.
    Our hearts, thoughts, and prayers are with you in the loss of your precious husband. The Lord bless you and keep you, and give you peace as you hold on to the hope that can never be taken away.

  4. Dear Shirley and all your family. I had the privilege of working with Ray at Grant’s Farm. His smile, humor and compassion always touched my heart. Work was never laborious with him. He found joy in moving tables and chairs out of the courtyard for an event and always got excited to see the animals out in the deer park. He was and remains a bright light. I thank the Lord for the gift of knowing Ray. With love, Norene Mills
