......Together forever with God....Kelly Ray was like a father to me, observing his positive wisdom, I grew to love this man. Sugar coating anything wasn't Rays' style, he lived in black & white disregarding life's trivial grey areas. Existing in *reality*, Ray was a product of what he advised & suggested to others. Dependability should have Rays' name in its definition. You will always be in my thoughts & I realized God has received another respected Angel to share eternity with. Much thanks & respect will always be forwarded in your memories as I pass your house daily keeping you in my prayers. Gods Army has become stronger with the addition of you Kelly Ray...... Love & Prayers Always, Ron Kruzyk...........say hello to my friends above, please......

Raymond will always be remembered by me in a Special way. He was so nice to me when I needed a ride home from a Sunday meeting in Sheffield Lake. He took me right to me driveway and made sure I made it in inside my house before revearcing from my driveway to go on to his home. He always stayed near the Donuts and always helped fold the tables and chairs and sometimes for a treat he would get a donut that was left over from the meeting. I admire him for his sobriety and gentle soul. He is missed and will not be forgotten.
