Uncle Raymond was a dear, dear man. He was a good son, husband, father, grandfather, as well as uncle, friend, and mentor. I regret not hearing of his passing until now, and thus of missing his memorial service. I shall lay flowers at his gravesite the next time I am in Houston, and also visit the sites of our ancestors.
