Our deepest sympathy in the loss of your mom. Ray was a very kind, hospitable and loving women who with Paul always welcomed everyone into their beautiful home for delicious dinners or fun get togethers. She was like a sister to my mom Estelle and Ray had sewn her wedding gown for her. Wonderful memories of the family. Will keep Ray and the family in our thoughts and prayers at this difficult time. Keep the good memories close to your hearts.

What a wonderful woman. Her energy, caring and smile brought joy to all. She never seemed to tire of doing for others. My earliest memory of Rae was playing in her house with Karen and Laurie, in big boxes of brightly coloured bows - what fun. My most poignant memory of her was when she cradled Uncle Duke as he died. Rae was so dear. She will always hold a special place in my heart. Love and sympathy, Judy
