    Uncle Ray,I know you are so happy now in heaven with mamaw, papaw and Aunt Hilda. The heavenly father opened his arms and welcomed you. I’m glad you are now at rest and at peace. You will be missed but knowing where you are and who you are with makes us feel better,here on earth! Love Tina

    Uncle Ray,
    I love you so much. I was so upset when I
    found out how sick you were, and how
    much you have struggled with health issues.
    I feel terrible that I allowed life to keep me so
    busy that I havent been by to visit, and now
    it’s too late. I do have peace though, knowing
    you are in heaven with our Lord and Saviour,
    along with my mom, Aunt Irma, Mamaw
    and Papaw King, Uncle Dean, and others
    that you love, and I will see you all again one
    day. Love you, Dana

    Uncle Ray. Just wanted to say I love you. The Lord has taken you home. You are now in paradise and rejoicing with ones that have already gone home. It makes me happy to know there will be no more suffering and pain. You have been made whole. You can now be reunited with those that have gone before you. Just tell everyone we will see them soon. Eat a WHOPPER for me. Love you

    Uncle Ray, I’m so sad to hear that you have left us; but you are in a better place now and your pain has ended. You are very loved and will be missed dearly! Next time I’m at What-A-Burger I’ll make sure to grab an extra one in your honor. Love, Matt

    Uncle Ray: I will forever miss the sound of you walking around the house and asking Nana for a breakfast sandwich. I’m glad you are free from the body that held you back for so many years and caused so much pain. We will make sure to do a few scratchers down here for you and celebrate when we win. I hope you are enjoying a cup of fresh pot of coffee with an amazing Mountain View and Cocoa by your side.
