Dear Cousins Don and Brian
A friend from Somerset e-mailed me this Fri. morn about your Dad. I wish that I had known earlier and I would have come down for the funeral. It would be good to see you guys. I called our cousin Phil, who has a real estate firm in Somerset that he started after retiring from teaching at Shopville. He wasn't aware that your dad had passed and I don’t know that I called him in time to get to the funeral.
For a couple of years when I was in high school before my dad died in July 1961 when I was the chief car washer and handy guy at Somerset Motors run by my Dad, and where Uncle Ray worked as a salesman, I got to know your Dad. He was handsome, friendly, smart,
... and kind and had a great sense of humor. It was always fun to talk with him – He had interesting/thoughtful insights and often had a humorous take on topics. I last saw your dad at my mother’s funeral ten years ago. He was sharp then at age 84, and had his usual share of interesting stories to tell.
My mother told me that Uncle Ray lived with her and Dad while Ray attended high school (before I was born). I think the last time I saw you guys was when we visited you 60 or so years ago (was it in Illinois?)
I’m sorry about your loss – but your dad had a long life, and he brought a “Ray” of sunshine to those he met along the way.
