Ginny and family, Our sympathy to you and the whole family on Ray's passing. He lived a rich and full life and we know you have many positive memories to cherish in the years to come. When I was a boy growing up around DeGraff, I would always enjoy the fast pitch softball games he played in and coached. May you all have comfort, peace and the presence of God to give you strength in the days ahead. Love you!

We are so sorry to hear of your husband and dad's passing. We know he is in heaven with other loved ones. Your dad was a dear friend our entire lives. Last time I visited with him at GreenHills he was so positive. We had some great times over the years especially playing sports and coaching our sons and daughters. We will be unable to attend the services due to visiting family out of town but please know our prayers, thoughts and hearts are with you all. I will miss him very much. Marge, we especially think of you.
