Editor’s Note: I had seen Ray throughout my life but I only got to know him once I came to The Welch News. Over the years we shared many stories, jokes and laughs. I will be missing that infectious laugh and smile, as well as hearing him sing. Thank you for all the great times Ray and much love from the entire Welch News team.
