  2. I was a classmate of Rayson’s at Amestoy Elementary in Gardena. I remember him as a tough kid, but he was funny. I hope that his family finds comfort that he is in the arms of the Lord and that he will be watching over all of you. You will be in my prayers. Sincerely,Cheryl Anthony Mingee

  12. To Raynette and Son and family I remember Rayson as a young lad of about 3 or 4 years old sitting in front of the fireplace at 1800 Esplanade in Redondo Beach. Here everyone was Blessed by the anointed teachings of Dorothy Matthews. How wonderful that Rayson had this early teaching in his life. His life was certainly too short, but I believe he is in heaven visiting with other saints that have gone on before. And I trust the Lord to carry the family’s grief and sorrow. “Isaiah 53:4 Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows:… “

  13. RAYSON HEAVEN IS YOUR HOME I KNOW THAT HEAVEN IS YOUR PLACE IT’S BETTER THE THE SIGHTS WE SEE NOW YOUR SIGHTS ARE INSIDE ETERNITY I KNOW THAT HEAVEN IS YOUR HOME THERE IS NO PAIN, THERE IS NO FEAR JESUS WIPED AWAY YOUR TEARS IT’S HARD TO BE APART TEARS SEEM TO FLOW AND NEVER STOP YOU WILL ALWAYS BE WITHIN MY HEART RAYSON HEAVEN IS YOUR HOME THE ASSURANCE OF THE LORD’S JOY IN HEAVEN HELPS ME TO MOVE ON WITH COMFORT AND CONFIDENT HOPE THAT WE WILL SEE EACH OTHER AGAIN. RAYSON HEAVEN IS YOUR HOME. I WILL ALWAYS MISS AND LOVE YOU FOREVER. MOM I WOULD LIKE TO THANK EVERYONE FOR THEIR CONTINUED PRAYERS. RAYSON’S FAITH IN CHRIST AND YOUR PRAYERS WAS HIS STARIWAY TO HEAVEN. MAHALO, REYNETTE CHANG

  14. Dear Reynette,Son and family. I want to thank the Lord for Rayson and for who he was is Christ. I beleive in my heart that Jesus was always with Rayson even at the end of life on this earth.I will always have a special place in my heart for Rayson, and I know by experience that it’s not until a saint goes home do we realize the impact that they had on our lives.The person that Rayson is will never be forgotten his presences will always be with us, because each one of us has something that he gave us, and that memory will never be lost. And the promise is that we will see him again PRAISE GOD!!! lOVE TO ALL OF YOU.

  15. We will miss our nephew, Rayson, very much.Our memories of him while he was growing up are precious. He was always polite and gracious and had a magnetic personality – you were drawn to him right away. He was very warm and friendly and the minute he started to speak, you can tell he had a sweet spirit. Even when he grew up and came to visit us, he always had nice things to say. I remembered him saying when he came to our house to visit that he complimented how nice it looked and even our carpet looked great! His personality did not match his lifestyle and we know he had a hard life, but we’re thankful for his testimony of the love of Jesus in his heart. Dear Rayson, we love you and miss you, Uncle Sonny & Auntie Bev.

  16. BABYFACE,I STILL REMEMBER THE FIRST TIME I MET YOU,IT WAS IN 1985 & YOU WERE LIVING ON BUDLONG IN GARDENA, I HAD GONE TO VISIT DENISE & DIANA, WHO LIVED ACROSS THE STREET FROM YOU. YOU LOOKED SO MEAN! BUT ONCE I GOT TO KNOW YOU, WE BECAME FRIENDS AND I REALIZED YOU WERE ONE OF THE COOLEST PEOPLE TO HANG OUT WITH. YEARS PASSED & WHEN WE WOULD RUN INTO EACHOTHER YOU ALWAYS MADE A POINT TO COME OVER & SAY HELLO. THAT MADE ME FEEL SO SPECIAL, “FACE” I WILL ALWAYS LOVE & REMEMBER YOU!!

  17. We haven’t seen Ray since he was very young. Out deepest sympathy and may God Bless the family and keep everyone strong. Aloha.

  18. Hello Raynette and Rita mama told me that I could go into this web-site so I did and got to see your son. Raynette I am so so sorry my heart is with you and I just want you to know how much I love you and i feel so sorry about the lost of your son. Raynett and Rita may our Lord Jesus Christ take away all your sorrows and replace it with peace knowing that your son is now with Jesus. Your son is now feeling alot of joy that we cannot image he is so happy and one day we will see him again. God raised the Lord Jesus from the dead,and we know the God will also raise us with Jesus. God will bring us together with you, and we will stand before him. 2Cor 4:14 So when you think of Rayson don’t be sad he is happy and out of pain and we are all going to see him again I love all of you and keep walking with Jesus giving him praises everyday in song and in words Bless you all Love your cousin Loretta
