Jean and family, we are saddened by the death of Raymond. We always enjoyed running into you two at Sunrise or Jimmie’s and hearing about your latest cruise or camping adventure. We were especially grateful when you both began to attend Blair Road UMC. We are sending love wrapped in prayers for comfort and peace as you travel this grief journey.
