For many years I have seen Ray out and about and in his uniform for the Honor Guard. I have always respected Ray and am very sorry to hear of his passing. He will be sadly missed by quite a few people. The Honor Guard will always miss him as will I. May God bless you and all of the rest of the family in you time of grief and mourning.
