Angie and Claudia,
My prayers are with you during this time. I only met your Dad once but I know he loved his family. May you find peace in knowing he is with the angels in heaven and is no longer in pain.

Ray and family, I have loved being able to spend time and learn of your family. It has been a great pleasure in getting to know all of you. Ray is a very sweet and kindhearted man and his smile would brighten my day with every visit. I'm sorry for your great loss but heaven has a wonderful new angel.
