What memories are brought in focus in recalling the years Ray served with me in the Ford Motor Company Dealer Development Office in Dallas. Ray was always a breath of fresh air. He knew his job and he performed it in an excellent manner, mentoring our DD Operators and providing good counsel to them and, particularly, their office staffs. I will miss him. Bob McAfee, November 29, 2010 We have lost one of the most inspirational role models I have ever known. Ray was a great man who gave me great advice through the years I knew him. He always was willing to just sit and talk, but most importantly he would listen. He had a gift that not many people have. He never gave you the answers you expected, he gave you directions to the answers. God has taken a great Angel and he will continue to bless our lives. Bobby Pulley, November 28, 2010 Please accept my deepest sympathy, I am so sorry for your lost Mike Schnurer, November 28, 2010 So many memories, so many good times together. I will miss you so much.

Please know I have fond memories of both you and Ray all those years at Grace and have missed seeing you so much. He is at home where we will be soon and for that I'm content. I hope you are as well. Do keep in touch and let me know how you all are doing. Bev Beverly June Weadock, November 28, 2010
