    Mr. Raymond was such a wonderful, loving man. I was privileged to meet him while visiting his home, with his daughter, Lisa. He treated me like family from day one and was a most gracious host. I thank God that he allowed us to cross paths. My sincerest condolences to my sister-friend Lisa and the rest of the family, may God bless you all.
