Carol and family, so sorry to hear about Ray. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. Ray was a wonderful person. I'm glad to have had the chance to get to know him. I'll always remember the day Lisa and I got lost trying to visit you at your campground. Carol, you and Ray always put a smile on my face when I would see you walking into the restaurant. I still think about "vanilla cake" because of your daughter. Miss you and please take care.
