    Gonna miss you lil Ray especially telling you I can see over your head. Since I’m not much taller than you are. And of course your Brownies that would put 20 pounds on you without even eating any.

    Shirley, so sorry to hear of Ray’s death. We always enjoyed you and Ray coming to the office and Ray bringing us some of his homemade Brownies. We will be praying for you and family at this time.
