Mon Sherri, Hannah and Darrell,
I am so sorry for your loss…. Ray was a one of a kind gem. My greatest memories of Ray – when I would come home for a visit and pop down to visit the White’s and I am known to be a ‘hugger’.. So Ray would always expect my arms opened for a squeeze ( whether he wanted one or not-he knew he didn’t have a choice!!!) LOL… ” Now Sarah, don’t go squeezing me too hard this time!”. ..haha… I was also fortunate in visiting him 2 summers ago at Chancellor , we talked about the good old days, had some laughs and life chats….And it never failed that he would make sure to bring up I should of became an RCMP…. lol
God rest his heart… and his soul.
My love and air hugs have been sent your way…
Love you
Sarah, Ben and Shiva
xoxo
