  • My sweet friend, I’m simply going to miss you. We spent many years side by side “no two on a towel” will always make me smile and so will every memory I have of you.

Dear Ray, I can’t imagine how your holding up because I know that’s your girl. The love you two shared was inspiring to us all. I’m praying for you daily. I can’t be there tonight but wanted to make sure you knew that your in my thoughts and prayers. Love to you Mr. Hollywood… as she would always refer to you with me.
