We are very sad to learn that Ray has passed away. We received a prayer card in the mail yesterday. We are grateful to whoever sent that to us. Carl served in the Navy with Ray over 50 years ago and had maintained a friendship over the years. We visited with him in Florida a few years back. We send our sympathy to his family and his friends. Rest In Peace Ray..... Carl & Sue Fischer
