Sorry for your loss. Ray was a great carpenter whom I had the pleasure to work with at the old school on St. Thomas Line. He was always a happy guy and loved his work. Your days go so much better when you work with people like Ray Butler so I am sure anyone who knew Ray must of enjoyed being close to him. Rest in Peace Ray and say hi to Betty!

Juanita and Butler Family,
