  7. Terri, I am so sorry for your loss. I heard that Ray had been ill; however, his passing was not expected. I am here for you, as a colleague/friend. Ray is resting peacefully, no more pain. God has called him because he needs Angels like Ray to continue his work in heaven.

  8. Nancy Garlisi-Klatte :

    Ray is surely in heaven now. He was a very kind, sincere, man who loved to talk with everyone. He liked to help people and he had a way of calming them when they were in distress. It was always nice to see his smiling face at the prayer group meetings. He had a tremendous knowledge of the Bible and the saints and his stories were very interesting. He had a love for life, for people, for animals. The world has lost a good person and he will be greatly missed.
