Bonnie you don't know what shocking news this is for me. Ray was a very very good friend for the past 33 years. I am so heart broken. I will never again enjoy his humor in are text to one another. He would always ask how is your mom who right now is not doing to well. I will miss him. May God take him in his arms and hold him forever free of all earthly pain. RIP my friend.
