  1. So sorry, Pat and family for your loss. Ray always brought a Christmas card from him and Pat to us annually. Ray and Pat always waved and spoke to us when we drove by the house and they would be sitting out on their porch. He will be missed. We’ll keep your family in our prayers.

    Steve & Cathy Newby
