Condolence & Memory Journal

So sorry to hear this news. What a great man. Selfless, kind, honest and funny! I had the pleasure of working with him at the Littleton Area Senior Center some 15 years ago. He rescued me in a snowstorm one night- making sure I got home to my family despite how dangerous the road conditions were. I shall never forget his kindness that night. Not sure what would have happened if he wasn't there. Thank you Ray. Heaven has sure gained a shining star.

Hi Ray, blessings and gifts eternal for you in heaven, I'm sure . I had worked with Ray for 3 years in the Littleton Area Senior Center. He was a great gift . . . a real man, tough, always hard working, deeply thoughtful, intelligent, youthful and with great purpose. He was fun to work with and be around. I told him "You're a good guy Ray and smart." Thanks for the info on the vans and so much more. As the info on the importance of being aware. As Ray said "It takes 100 or 200 years for a tree to grow, they should preserve the forests." I'll see you in heaven and thank you for being one of a kind, a great individual. I'll miss you for now. Sincerely, Jeff Norton
