His family has loved being a part of the legacy that Ray started and left behind with his passing, but it is time for us to move on. We cannot thank his many, many customers, friends, fans and supporters enough for the love, generosity, and countless stories we have have received since his passing. We have shared them with one another and many laughs and tears have followed. This is a bittersweet action for us to take, but it is time.

It is with heavy heart that we must let Ray's customers know of his passing. We lost Ray in July of 2022. His family is working hard to connect with the folks who have contacted him via this site since July, but as you can assume, this is a big task. Please know we are doing our best to respond to all inquires individually.
