I count it as my privilege to have known Mr Ray, if only tangentially, for more than two decades. Never rude, or boorish, always comported himself with class. I wish all my customers were such a pleasure to know. I am surprised at how saddened I am to have learned of his passing. Our loss... heaven's gain. God bless, Mr Ray. And thanks.
