    So sad to hear of Ray’s passing. I worked with Ray on the Hudson River in the 70s. He was a great friend as well. I still have a collection of the poems he wrote for & about the various people with whom we both worked. I will never forget him and the dart tournaments. He loved to laugh. Miss ya, big guy!
