Kathy and family, I was so sorry to hear of Ray's passing. It's been a long time since I've seen the two of you, but I have many fond memories of Ray's visits to talk about cars. I remember how he used to kind of intimidate me, then I got to know him and know how nice he really was. I'm sure he will be sorely missed.
