There are so many fond memories of Ray and Rosemary from my childhood and after that there were trips back to Illinois from Oklahoma. Ray was always such a laughing, pleasant person who would welcome us back to his and Rosemary's home for a visit. He was a wonderful father, husband, friend, and cousin. He will be missed by many family members and friends.

I GUESS BECAUSE OF THE 18 YEARS DIFFERENCE IN OUR AGE I THOUGHT RAY WAS MORE LIKE AN UNCLE TO ME RATHER THAN A COUSIN. WE HAD A LOT IN COMMON --HUNTING AND FISHING--BEING A GREAT PART OF BOTH OUR LIVES, PROBABLY IF WE HAD LIVED CLOSE TO ONE ANOTHER WE WOULD HAVE SPENT A GOOD DEAL OF TIME TOGETHER FISHING AND HUNTING.I KNOW RAY WILL BE MISSED BY ALL WHO KNEW HIM. I KNOW I WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER HIM, HE ALSO WAS SUCH A GOOD FRIEND OF MY DAD. ROSMARY- I WILL REMEMBER YOU IN MY PRAYERS AND MAY GOD BLESS YOUR DAYS
