So sorry to hear of Ray's passing, I have fond memories of working with him as a Building Inspector and for all the trees he gave us when we bought our home in East Hartland. Also volunteering with Ray at the Granville Fire department. Our sincerest condolences at this sorrowful time. May your cherished memories carry you through your grief.
