Carol and Family, I send my deepest sympathy and condolences. Ray was very good to our young family and certainly you were both a great blessing to us. Memories will keep him close. God comfort and sustain you now as He does daily.

What a great picture of Ray on this website! We worked on many claims and cases together when I was a young lawyer at MacDonald Illig Jones & Britton. I remember Ray taking me to show me your saltbox just after it was built. The last time I saw him I stopped to see him at his Subaru dealership near Monroeville. It was as if we'd just seen each other. Ray was a terrific litigation specialist, but a better man and friend. I regret that I lost touch with him after he sold the dealership. I hope you and he enjoyed many great years and memories together, and that you'll have many more. My sincere sympathies on Ray's passing, Carol. All my best. Tim

Sending prayers of comfort for you and your family. Growing up just up the road from you and your husband, I will always remember your kindness to my sisters and I. Especially the great, big, old-fashioned candy canes you would give us near Christmas! May memories be a reprieve from your sorrow. God bless you and your family.
