    Ray was the sweetest little boy. I loved to see Ray and my daughter play together. They were more like brother and sister. We (family) are all so sad to hear the news. Sorry we also missed out on his life as he became a man with a family. We feel so for the family, having been there ourselves. Debbie I love you and feel so much pain for you right now.
    It’s not fair that we should go through this, only prove faithful yourself so you can hold him in your arms again. Love always, Sandy
