    Uncle Ray, you will always be my favorite uncle. Your dry wit and humor often inspired happiness and laughter. I remember the many visits at Grandma’s in Independence where dad (Bryce) and mom (Betty) would set outside in
    the shade as we all took turns cranking the ice cream maker.

    You will be missed by all, but you will always be with us in our hearts and our memories.

    Love, Don and Dottie

    So sorry to hear about Uncle Ray. My fondest memories are sharing Thanksgiving together at grandma’s house and listening to all the stories. Love, Jennifer and family
