It is difficult for me to think of enough thoughtful words of expression that clearly describe the wonderful folks that Ray was, and Peggy is. Sometime ago, I read a quote that went like this. " The greatest dignity to be found in death is the dignity of the life that preceeded it. We have been given this miracle of life because milliions upon millions of things have prepared the path for us, and inevitably when its gone, we're left to carry on the legacy. The passing of a single person becomes the the crossroads to ongoing life, and until the final days of our journey, we need to be in the company of those we love". I can say with strong conviction that Ray was always embraced by his loved ones; and had the unconditional support from a devoted and loyal family. I can not thank Ray and Peg enough for the outstanding support they provided me low the years I flew for the military, and still to this day. Ray R.I.P.Joseph P. Gutierrez
