I didn't know Ray well at all - probably only spoke w/him a few times at Tom & Julie's wedding and maybe parties for Benjamin? But, I know he will be missed by all his family and friends. I'm so sorry for your loss and will keep you and your families in my thoughts and prayers! Sympathies and Love, Polly (Anderson) Wiebke, (Julie's Wawcak's sister) Owatonna, MN
