Add My Condolences

My dearest Nancy, I came across Ray's Obituary by sheer accident, in trying to find an obituary for someone that I worked with before retirement. I am so very sorry to read that Ray was battling cancer, and lost his fight with that dreaded disease. You and Ray were such good friends to my late husband, Joe (Wayock), and myself, and I just felt the need to leave my feelings here, in the hopes that you get the opportunity to see them one day. May the love of family and friends grant you comfort, and may the love of God, grant you peace. Love, Carol

Nancy. I am sorry that I missed the service. I wish you peace and relief from your grief. I have found it to be like a roller coaster unpredictable, volatile, and recurrent. Please know that there are others and more than you think who have you in their prayers.

It is with great sadness we say "farewell til we meet again", to our dear Uncle Ray. He was blessed to have Nancy and Brian by his side. Uncle Ray was a wonderful person and we will miss him, his stories, David's hunting partner, and his humor. We love you Uncle Ray.
