4 Condolences for Raymond E. Amilcare

  • Muhammad Ali once said, “Friendship . . . is not something you learn in school. But if you haven’t learned the meaning of friendship, you really haven’t learned anything.”
    Ray was the type of friend that always had your back in good times and bad. Had so much trust and confidence in people that you never had reason to question his motives. He would give you the shirt off his back if you needed it. Don’t know who said this but is also true, “Good friends are like stars. You don’t always see them, but you know that they’re always there.” Ray will be remembered as a Great Guy – At work, online, and in the Real (outside of work) World. The day we moved the jungle gym /swing-set for your daughter and grandson was an adventure to say the least, but one I’ll not forget. My Football Buddy in several leagues for many years, My tech buddy that could fix anything, Twisted – JRZ / AON/ and many others he helped create, build,and maintain online bonds with people around the globe. Work also will never be the same without you there. The strongest of fighters, tough as they come. Battled this cancer very hard, for so very long time, RIP Bro, & may I be lucky enough to talk with you again someday. Thank you for being my friend.

  • My prayers are with each of you.. The good lord has another sweet angel.. Joyce & Ken Fleetwood
