  1. I am sending my sincere condolence to the family of Ray Flowers, a man who I worked with
    in our 20s. Ray was a very gentle, but a strong man. We worked at construction laying concrete blocks . Ray could lift and lay more blocks than anyone I had seen. I marveled
    @ his strength and his work. I never saw Ray loose his temper or say anything hateful to anyone.
    Rest in peace you very nice man, Ray Flowers.

  2. Sending prayers and love … so sorry he was a great friend and will be missed very badly… Steve and Anna Patrick

  3. I always Remember Ray sitting on the front porch of his house when he was off work. He would wave at me when I would go down the road,I will always cherish this memory of him. I will be praying for you all your friend kim wood

  4. Melinda, Emily, Sandra, Deloris, and aunt Reba, So sorry for your loss. I will always cherish our childhood memories.

  5. Mr Flowers was a wonderful man, a true example of what we should all be as human beings. We loved him tremendously .
