    One of the funniest guys I have ever worked with. I called him “Lobster” (yes – totally in fun – and he was aware) and he called me a number of assorted (and often deserved – as you might imagine) things. I only got to meet you one time, Linda, and there was only one little one then (the second was on the way). We all have our favorite stories that Ray told us. I loved the dog and the water hose. Then there was the wheelchair and the fishing boat. The list goes on. Hard to believe that voice is now silent. My sympathy to the entire Viana family. God bless.
