Condolence & Memory Journal

Ray, it's been two years since you left us. I will keep your memory alive until we meet again. I just miss your comfort, your smile, your sense of humor, your wit, everything I miss about you. We had the perfect love story from beginning to end. I just wished we met sooner so I could love you longer. I read your letters every day and I thank God for sending you to me for the past ten years. Rest In Peace Ray I miss you so. I'll see you again. Xxxooo

Sorry to hear the news about Ray!
My condolences go out to his family.
I hung around with Ray in East Boston many years ago. We played football in high school. It has been many years but you always hold those special friends in your heart. Ray was a good friend, easy going and a pleasure to be around.
May he Rest In Peace!

Ray was one of my best friends. We had a lot of great times together. I will remember each one of them forever. He will truly be missed. My condolences and prayers are with his family.

I am deeply saddened by the loss of this wonderful man. He was a class act and my family and I were lucky to have had him in our lives for this short time. He was kind and generous and adored my sister Stephanie. He had the best sense of humor and I will miss him dearly. He loved poetry and the Raven and to his memory, I toast a mojito and Edgar Allen Poe. "But the Raven, sitting lonely on the placid bust, spoke only
That one word, as if his soul in that one word he did outpour.
Nothing farther then he utterednot a feather then he fluttered
Till I scarcely more than muttered Other friends have flown before
On the morrow he will leave me, as my Hopes have flown before.
Then the bird said Nevermore.

Stephanie,
I'm heartbroken to hear of Ray's passing. Although I didn't know Ray a long time, I feel very fortunate to call him a friend. Ray was of a different time; honorable, loyal, respectful and a true gentleman. Even in the face of overwhelming medical issues, he didn't complain and would always ask how you were and what he could do for you. He always spoke so highly of you and what good care you took of him. You are in my prayers, Stephanie.

I Love you so much Ray. I started missing you before you were gone. You and I always will always have a bond. You were the kindest, thoughtful courageous brave man. Such an honorable human being. I hope you are at peace and in the arms of the lord. I know you are with your mother & son. Thank you for being my Aunt Stephanie's Rock, best friend and the love of her life. As she was the love of your life. It has been an honor to know you and have you in our family for 10 years. I still can't believe you are no longer with us. The ones left behind suffer the most but you will NEVER be forgotten. May you Rest In Peace.
