    I work at Rosewood. I had the honor of helping to take care of Ray. I loved Ray. What a great dad and husband he must have been. Even while he was not doing to well, he had a great sense of humor and his eyes told the story of his soul. Thanks for sharing Ray with me. I feel honored to be there during his passing. Deb P.

    My condolences to the friends and family of Ray. I have fond memories of him when we lived near the cities and he and Helen would visit for the day. He was kind to my family and we will treasure the times that we were able to spend with him. He was a good man and although I didn’t have the chance to spend alot of time with my uncle, I will remember him with fondness.

    We always enjoyed our visits with Ray and Helen when we were in Fargo. We also saw him a few times a the Memorial Day services at the North Dakota
    Veterans Cemetery. We shall miss his yearly visits to Beulah, ND
    and his jokes. May god embrace him as he enters his eternal home.
