So sorry for your loss Lynn, Diane and family. Ray will forever hold a special place in my heart. I am grateful for the many childhood memories I have of both Ray and Janet. While it’s incredibly difficult, wrap your arms around the cherished moments spent. We are all blessed to have parents who loved us unconditionally. Take away the blessing that he knew he was loved and you did your best. He was loved and that provides comfort. I love you both, he loved you dearly. ??
