Greetings everybody, this is Daniel Ivankovich reaching out to Chicago's Blues Community and beyond. It's with a heavy heart that I announce the unexpected and sudden passing of our brother, Mr. "Killer" Ray Allison. We are all in shock and overwhelmed with grief at the loss of this amazing human being and incredible bluesman. In the coming days, we need to plan an appropriate Homegoing Service & Celebration to properly show our love and respect for the man who has enriched all of our lives with music and smiles. As we prepare to send him home, any and all generosity is appreciated. It will help us cover his funeral and headstone expenses. Thank You for your kindness and generosity. Peace & Love from Ray and his family.
"I don't feel that no big stone should be put over my head, saying he did this, he did that. Unless there's something that I really did do. I believe I'm just ordinary. And I'd like for people to think of me that way, as just a guy that tried. Wanted to be loved by other people because he loved people." - B. B. King
