I was so sorry to read about Raymonds passing away. I knew the family while we were in school and attending the same church and youth activities. Just wanted to send my sympathy to the Bice family. May God comfort you during this time.

I'm going to miss you, Uncle Ray. One of my fondest memories was the first time I could remember Uncle Ray. I was coming out of grandma's patio and seeing my dad standing next to a skinny man with a long beard. My dad introduced me and said "This is your Uncle Ray." There was a lot of people I met back then, but this memory was special to me. I pray for your family's comfort in this time. I am truly going to miss you. I wished we had more time.
