I remember Ray from my time working as Special Deputy US Marshal in Atlanta in the 80's. He had a golden personality. We weren't close but he always took time to speak, say hello and use my first name. I've never forgotten him, nor his sacrifice. I'm now retired and very thankful for his example and influence on my early years. That example helped me through the years. For that I'm eternally in his debt.
