I have known “Uncle” Raymond all my life it seems. Such a close friend to my Dad while I was growing up. He is one that treated you like family even if there was no blood connection…such an amazing person. Brien and I will be praying for the family for peace and healing during this difficult time.

In 1974 Raymond would come down to the Aetna which he was the manager, after closing 10:30 pm to sell me gas so I could get back to the military base. The gas was being rationed.. He was a true good person. Wish we had more like him. I know he’s in Heaven! God Bless you Raymond. Love you my brother!
