Ray's son Roger and son-in-law Dan started this blog so that all Ray's friends could share in the celebration of his life. Ray amassed countless friends from all corners of the globe. His death has taken a piece of all of us with him. We hope that this blog will serve as a safe harbor from our grief. We would particularly like humorous stories and recollections of Ray (pictures too) . As the blog content builds, we will not dwell on our regret at having lost such a rare gem as Ray but rather count our blessings at having shared a piece of life with someone who treasured life's every moment. Until we meet again Ray....and keep the home brew cold!
