So sorry to hear about Uncle Raymond. All of you will have fond memories of growing up in your big happy family with two wonderful parents. I even have fond memories of visiting on Sundays when we were kids. Such good times!

Our deepest sympathies are extended to each of you. I'm sure you have many memories to cherish. My memories include the Youth Fellowship activities we had with West Hill & St. Mary's and the leadership from your parents. God bless your family!
