Heartfelt sympathy goes out to all family members of my Uncle Raymond. He will be so missed by me as well as many other lives he touched. His foremost concern was for the needs of his family. I always remember him encouraging me. I am so grateful to have had such a steadfast and selfless uncle.
I am saddened to read of the passing of Raymond Smith. I have known him and his family for a long time. He was always the same, smiling, when ever I saw him. He learned that I was in the Marines and he shared that he too was a Marine. I had even more respect for him after that. He was an asset to his city. My condolences to his family as I am sure he will be missed. Rest in Peace, and Semper Fi, Raymond.
May the beautiful memories of your loved one provide solace and strength to you and your family during this difficult time. May you also find much comfort in God’s promise of life without end on a Paradise earth. Matt 5:5 & Psalms 37:11, 29
