My Dear Brother-in-law Ray, Rest In Peace now with your beautiful wife Marie! I will cherish the lunches we shared together at Janet’s house. I have wonderful memories at PJ’s Tavern and all the holidays we spent together at Mom and Dad’s house. You will never be forgotten!! I love you Ray. We had lots of good times at the Elks Christmas Party for our kids.

So sorry to hear of Ray’s passing. Condolences to his entire family. I first met Ray when he was a crossing guard at the corner of my street. I spent a couple of years waving to him and occasionally chatting with him. It wasn’t until I became a crossing guard myself on the next block up that we discovered he was good friends with my late father-in-law. He shared many very funny stories of the shenanigans that they got into together. I thoroughly enjoyed our conversations. Ray is a wonderful person. God Bless you and rest your soul Ray. I hope you and Big Mac keep the shenanigans to a minimum.
