This is a tough time for my family and I. Ray and I had a bond that could not be broken through anything. He was my brother, my family, my other half, and nothing can change that. The day he left us, a part of me was taken, but I will be waiting for the day until we are whole again. You'll always watch over me, helping me through the times. This ones for you bro. The same way you came in is the way you went out, "Going Out With A Fight".
You always were a caring and pertective person when it came to your family. Tho you left behind a big family and tons of friends god now has you under his wing and we are now fortunate to have another angel to pertective us from the heavens above! You will be sadly missed and forever in our hearts but I know that you are now reunited with your grandma, your dad, cousin Phillip, uncle Charlie and uncle Johnny. We can now sleep at night knowing you are in good hands.
To his four children please know that we are family no matter what we go through and we will always be here for you and that your dad loved you with all his heart and his eyes would always light up when he spoke of you! I love you and we will get through this together! Love always,
To my nephew Ray, you were taken away from us to soon . You left lots of things undone and others that you will never have a chance to start. Your heart was big, you never liked to see people cry or hurt, especially family. I only hope that you have found some peace . Your presence will be missed, but your memory will continue to live on within our hearts and your spirit will always be with us. All my love Ray, from your Uncle Mike.

Is not to die."
