I am so sorry to learn of the passing of your father and grandfather. I have heard many wonderful things about him over the years from people in the Lafayette community, and have seen the evidence of his character in knowing you. I wish I could have known him and heard his music. I am happy to have the privilege of knowing his offspring and making music with Darlene as well, and so his legacy lives on in you all. My prayers are with you and your family for comfort in your loss and faith in a heavenly future together. I know how difficult it is to let go, even though it is only for a time. God bless you all.
With warm regards,
Lots of love from us,
Craig and Marg Blocher
May God Bless you and Keep you in this tme of grief.
Love and Prayers,

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. May the wonderful memories in your hearts carry you through this difficult time.
Aunt Helen and family, we really sorry to hear of Uncle Rays passing. Please send us a phone number, as I really would like to visit with someone. I talked to Aunt Esther tonite and she would love to hear from Aunt Helen. Wished we could make the trip, but can not at this time. Our prayers go out to each one of you. Please give Aunt Helen a hug for me.
Love & prayers to you all
(I hope you remember me from across the street on North 16th street when we were just kids, Arlene)
So sorry to read about Ray&s passing. I know this is a difficult time for you and your family and I will keep you in my prayers. Please know that our Heavenly Father never gives us more than we can handle, so look to Him for solace and comfort.
We lost Mom last September and it was the hardest thing I have ever experienced, even more so that losing a husband to cancer in 1996 and losing Daddy to cancer in 1985, when he was only 58 years old. Surround yourselves with family and loved ones and know Ray is no longer suffering and is walking with Jesus on the streets of Gold.
