    To Ray’s family,

    I am deeply sorry for your loss. I met Ray 5 years ago thru work. Whenever I traveled to Brownsville and come across Ray on the floor, he always made sure I felt so welcome. He would make sure he stopped by to say Hi when I was in town. In our training sessions, he actively participated and whenever he did not attend, we felt his absence. I will surely miss his presence.

    Thank you Ms. Bungard for sharing your memory of my father. He always tried to make people feel welcomed and comfortable. In the hospital he liked to hand out snacks to the hospital staff.
