This sweet and dear man was a second father to me! There was never any special event that I ever attended that he didn’t take our picture. Growing up, Raymond, Billie Faye and Larry were in our home as much as theirs! I have so many memories of this sweet and God fearing man, leader, elder and precious friend! I will miss you!!
