Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal.
Ray SR. will be missed by everyone that ever had the honor to know him. He was a very special man that always made time for others. I will never forget his smile or his hugs.

To live in hearts, we leave behind is not to die.

While we are mourning the loss of our loved one, others are rejoicing to meet them behind the veil.

When someone you love becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure.

The angels are always near to those who are grieving, to whisper to them that their loved ones are safe in the hand of God.

Although it's difficult today to see beyond the sorrow, May looking back in memory help comfort you tomorrow.
