Deepest sympathies
Posted by Pat & Barbara Raffa (Friends) On Friday, March 22, 2019
Our deepest sympathies to you, Helene, Ray Jr., Marc and your families. We so enjoyed spending time with you, Helene, and Ray in Mexico. We learned so much from Ray and counted him as a close friend. We loved the way he could tell a story and be laughing at himself while he taught us about life in Mexico and life in general and in the end we’d all be laughing together. He was a kind, wise man with a great sense of humour who loved & cherished his family and friends and we will all miss him.

Hélène, Ray et Marc,

Très peiné d'apprendre le décès de Raymond au Mexique. Raymond était vraiment très apprécié. Son départ laisse sûrement un grand vide pour vous tous.

Mes sincères sympathies à toute la famille.
