Ray's Birthday

Today was Ray's 38th Birthday. We celebrated in many ways; remembering the very best of Daddy's favorite things, sending balloons to heaven with Ray's family, celebrating the person we miss so very much.

Over the weekend and today, so many people expressed such tender thoughts about the friend they miss too. How much this means to us.

At a mass this morning for Ray, our priest said these words, "When our life is over, let us hope that the story of our lives is so much more beautiful than its cover (our outward appearance)."

How I wish the story of Ray's life went on much longer. But I am so appreciative of its beauty.

not alone and not afraid --
