    Oh my goodness, I just heard of the passing of my wonderful cousin, Raymond. I’ve been crazy about him my whole life. Heaven gained a true angel. Always kind and pleasant to everyone. He will be missed deeply. My love goes out to his precious wife, Nona, Derrik and Dana and their families and Patsy and Cindy and their families. I’m so sorry for your loss. My husband is in the hospital so I won’t be able to attend his service tomorrow, but you all will be in my thoughts and prayers
