Condolence: Dear Aunt Phyllis and family, please accept my condolences on the passing of Uncle Ray. I've been gone from the area for a long time but I'll always remember crawling all over the pop truck to find the perfect bottle of pop, the time he helped me find my money in my jacket when I was at The Odena and I thought I lost it and forever grateful for the assistance to his Sister Irene (Mum) with her auction and much more.

Rest well Uncle Ray

In light and love, Nephew David
