My sympathies to Elaine, Ray (Jr), Eric.
It is sad to see Raymond go, but having watched him suffer over the years, i feel that God in his mercy, had compassion on him. Elaine, I admire your resilience. I know it was not easy but you never complained and always greeted me with a smile.. Eric, Dad could not have asked for a better son to help him in his final days.
May Raymond’s soul Rest in Peace.
