    Deeply saddened and will miss your bluntness and tell it like its demeanor. You have had many trials and tribulations in your life span and I admired your endurance and strength. For many could not see around your verbal force but you were kind hearted and would help those in need. Will miss our talks and appreciate your being my brother-in-law. RIP

    Trials and tribulations you certainly had Raymond. But you persevered and showed us the way. A strong personality you got from your mom and kind heart from your dad. We miss you already and will remember your smiling face and laughter till we meet again.

    I have known Raymond all my life and there was nothing I liked better than talking trash with him! He will be greatly missed. Wanda, you are in my thoughts and prayers, but I know you will find comfort in knowing that he is suffering no more and you have 46 years of memories to see you through this !❤️
