sincere sympathy for the loss of your love one. He was such a good man. He grew up with my father and mother ( Robert and
Claire Rowe}, as well as the Ocker family. I know he is now in Heaven with his love ones and God.

sorry for your loss David and Stan. I remember your father and thought him to be a good minister. Sincerely

I remember when Raymond as a boy and his parents came to the Mt. Zion church om their model A/T
car many years ago and then he left to pursue his ministry duties, but once they were completed, he returned to our church
and we were glad to have him back. Rest easy Rev. Kingsborough and say hello to Pearl.

I have only known Raymond a few years when I moved in
with my son who rented from him. It saddens me to see such a nice man pass. My prayers to the family.
Rev. Kingsborough was a great minister and person. He married me and
my past husband at Weller United Methodist in Thurmont many years ago. After he retired he would come down forfriendship
meals and visits. We enjoyed his visits. He will be missed.
I have many fond memories of Rev. Kingsborough. He baptized my 2 sons. He visited
at our home frequently. He would pick strawberries in the summer and I always bought several quarts. He never forgot his former
church family at Weller in Thurmont.
I am so sorry to hear of your families loss. I met Rev Kingsborough when he showed
up in my driveway to offer his condolences to me after my husband passed suddenly in 2006! He made a special trip to Thurmont,
MD and I will never forget that. I always enjoyed seeing him attend events at Weller UM Church in Thurmont. A true servant
of God. Thoughts and prayers are with you.
