Hello Raymond Family
I have so many fond memories of the neighborhood teacher and tomato grower. Also memories of him with his afternoon martini and those nasty olives. 🙂 May you all find peace knowing he is in a much better place than we are right now, and he will be waiting for all of us when we reach the final destination. I know its a hard thing we go through as survivors, but the memories will always remain. Keep them close to your heart and he will always be there with you.

God Bless you all
