We are sorry to hear of Ray's passing. Ray was a wonderful person and every time we were in Maine and visited the Methodist Cemetery, we would never miss the opportunity to walk across the road and visit with Ray and Kathleen. We did not get to see Ray in July because they weren't home, but we will always have special memories of Ray! Hugs, Greg and Sandy
