    • candle 1You loved me when I was good or bad.You showed me how to make a living to take care of me an my family.You were always there for me when I needed advice.Your my hero Dad,I will miss you . Until we are together again.I love you.

  1. candle 1The South Bay Bridge Club will never forget all you have done for the club for many, many years. Your partners, the players whom you have mentored, the friends you made at the club, all of us will miss you. You leave many beautiful memories behind. With sympathy from all of us at the bridge club.

  2. I take comfort in knowing that my dad is not in pain or suffering. The Bible shows that death is a state of total unconsciousness, the Bible says: “For the living are conscious that they will die; but as for the dead, they are conscious of nothing at all.” (Ecclesiastes 9:5) When a person dies, the Bible explains: “His spirit goes out, he goes back to his ground; in that day his thoughts do perish.”— (Psalms 146:3-4)

  3. The South Bay Bridge Club has lost a tireless contributor of many years. A tough competitor at the the table but always a gentleman, Ray will be greatly missed.

  4. Even though challenging circumstances and distance kept us from being together in person, I was blessed to stay daily in touch by phone with my Dad through his final days; he never lost his “get up and go” attitude; his physical body just tired out; I have total confidence he entered “the pearly gates” of heaven and God has welcomed Dad; I even like to think if there is bowling or Bridge in heaven, Dad is already participating; we love you and miss you already, Dad; may you rest in peace.

  5. candle 4My relationship with my grandpa was complicated at times because of my late mom but he always found a way into my life at unexpected times. I never asked for anything but love and guidance from him and he was willing to give me a piece of his knowledge when asked. I love you Grandpa and hope that we meet again on the other side.

  6. candle 8Grandpa you always were there for me in ways that would be hard to explain to anyone. You have your wings now….So fly high in the sky and watch over us all like you always did in your own way. I love you grandpa. You will always be in my heart and prayers. Tell Grandma and my mom and my uncle Dan I love them and so happy you all can be together again. RIP Grandpa

  7. candle 7Ray was a good man with a big heart. He brought a lot of joy and happiness to my Mom and for that I will always be grateful. Rest in peace.
