My Family,

I am so sorry we are not able to be with you during this time. I am with you at heart. I love you all and miss you so much. All the times "at the kitchen table". Memories will always be treasured. I remember growing up and always looking up to my Uncle Ray. He is like a super hero to me. He could do anything, fishing, hunting and knew everything about anything. He always treated us nieces and nephews like his own. He will truly be missed and was greatly loved. May the peace of God rest upon my family. I will see you all soon .Romans 8:18 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us . Amen.

With Sincere Love Nikki, Jabree and Kirah
