I'd like to share my heartfelt condolences to my cousins in the loss of their dad, my uncle Ray. I have felt honored to spend some time lately visiting with him this summer, listening to his one of many stories. Sometimes seeing the softer side of my Uncle, seeing what most would think of him as this tough ole' guy, but many times I was able to see the inner sweet, kind, loving, caring and emotional man and at times seeing tears come to his eyes. Even though you stopped to visit hoping you'd get in and out in a hour...well 5 hours later after many times of saying "Uncle Ray, i gotta go" and as you stood up for the twelfth time he'd tell ya to sit back down and another hour would go by...of course I've never regretted any of them moments and memories. Uncle Ray had a good heart, we knew he loved us even though you might have to say "I love you" a few times to get him to repeat it back to you. Lol. I still knew he loved me, as well I loved him very much. I'll be honest I could of sat for days listening to his stories and especially when he talked of the early years growing up with my dad and mom. He was very fond of my dad, had a lot of respect for him and shared many a story. Well, Uncle Ray...I hope you looking down will read this. You will be sincerely and sadly missed especially by me and I was very honored to build you, your eternal resting place. I will cherish that and hope that it meant as much to you as well. I love you dearly, Unc. 😘 May be gone now, but Never forgotten! ❤
