All I can here Uncle Raye saying was "You Girls", every time we did something we had no business doing. We were blessed to have another set of parents across the street from us. He loved us all as his own children. Uncle Ray was a godly man and showed us the love of a father. He will be dearly missed but I am so glad that I had the opportunity to share a season of my life with him in it. May God bless you Aunt Nit, Carol, and Sharee and the rest of the family.

Love from Denver, CO

Minister Miles will truly be missed. He was a prime example of living the life God wanted all of us to live. My prayers are with you and your family during this time. His life was well lived. May God comfort, minister, and heal you during this time.
