Condolence from Rosa Selig on January 24th, 2019 6:45 pm

Ray was a dear friend to my grandfather Gerald. He became so much a part of the family we began calling him uncle Ray.
I can’t remember too many holiday dinners or random invite dinners that Ray wasn’t sitting at our family table enjoying a delicious meal followed up with some card play… Knock (31) He always came prepared with a pocket full of change ☺️
He will surely be missed and No doubt I’m sure Grampy and him are laughing it up at the card table again.
The Norman Rockwell calendars with the old men, playing chess , that was Grampy and Ray , but with cards ♥️
My sincere condolences to his family.
