    Ray was a good and decent man.  He was always helpful to me in my career and always there to listen.  My one regret is that I couldn't be as helpful to him as he was to me. I will miss him. I am unfortunately in New York and cannot be there to pay in person respects but know that my thoughts are with his family.
