    Heather and Family: I am so sorry to hear about your dad's passing. My thoughts and prayers are with you all during this difficult time.

  • Jade and Lisa Miller

    We are so sorry to hear of Rays passing. Our deepest condolences for your loss. We will miss seeing Ray working in the yard, shoveling snow or backing into the driveway. Every time Jade tried to shovel a little bit of his walk he would get a scolding (and loved it). The best next door neighbors you could ask for.

    The best postal carrier I have ever known. I loved seeing him bring our mail growing up on second street. He always had a kind word for a skinny little girl named Betty.. Rest with the angels Ray.. Betty Dawson

    My deepest sympathies to the family of Robert . The loss of a dear loved one is one of the most difficult things to ever go through. I wanted to share the comforting promise of a resurrection found in the Bible at John 5:28,29. Please let the God of all comfort (2 Corinthians 1:3,4) give you strength, comfort and hope during this time of sorrow.

    I grew up knowing Ray and his family as he and my Dad worked for the Post Office in Laramie. He was quite the guy who always had a kind word and a smile for everyone. I never knew him any other way. I also got to "halbla espanol" from Mrs. Warren a lifetime ago at LHS. I will miss Ray and will always hold his friendship dear and close. Thinking about his family and friends.
