Ray, Ray, Ray, I am SO sorry for what happened to you, buddy. I worked with Ray in the 24th many years ago. Every single time that I saw him, his smile would light up the room, and he was ready to tell you his newest joke of the day.

Ray was great police and brightened up everyone's day, no matter who you were. We shared some good arrests, laughs, and times together. We really did. I could go on and on. I'm embarrassed to say that I had no idea of Ray's passing until I accidentally stumbled into it on the ODMP website. Ray, I'm sorry that I didn't know, buddy. If I get a chance, I'll check in on your family, Pal. God bless you and keep on smiling up in Heaven, brother, you're sorely missed down here. Rip.

John 5:28, 29 - "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". I pray that everyone can find peace in knowing that we will see this officer as well as many others again in Paradise soon. Until then, please accept my condolences.

As I ride into DC today, you and your family weigh heavy on my heart. You may be gone, but not forgotten by your family and law enforcement family. My ride from Roanoke to DC was in your honor and memory sir.
