I am SO sorry! Raymond was a very special friend. I worked with him at the post office for 15 years, and always looked for him in Walmart to say hello. I pray comfort for Keller an Megan that only God can give.

I’m so sad to hear this news about Raymond. He was one of my all time favorite people. Always a smile when he was at work and I always loved to talk with him and Kellee at the diner when they would come and eat. You were a kind and gentle soul. Rest In Peace my dear friend.

Ray was the sunshine of work. No matter what kind of mood you were going through Ray was always there to brighten the day up! He could never understand if your standing at your register why someone would ask you if your open or say you look like you need something to do? Every single day so now it’s a running joke between cashiers. Ray you’re going to be missed, loved, and living strong in memory. I pray for your family. Fly high friend.

Ray was a good, kind man, it was hard not to laugh at some of the things he would say, I remember when he told me about the customer who accused him of eating her half eaten hamburger while he was checking out her groceries at register 15, I couldn't stop laughing, he will be missed
