Papa Raymond,

I will never forget your kind heart and gentle spirit. I will never forget the love you had for your church. I will never forget when you hand picked stones for me at the flea market or how you ate your raisin bran soggy. I will never forget how much you loved your dogs, especially TJ and Spunky. I will never forget how much you loved Nanny, your friends, your family and the Lord. You were an amazing person and I was so lucky to have had you in my life. I love you so much Papa Raymond.

Raymond was a one of a kind man! He had a gift for finding his way deep into the hearts of so many. I know he was very special to Beth and it makes me happy knowing that she gets to see him again.
