    Ray, and family, My condolences on the loss of your father.

    So sorry for your loss. Many memories of your parents when I was growing up. My mother (Lillian sends her condolences recently suffered a stroke or she would attend services for your father).

    Dear Sischo Family, I am very sorry for your loss! It was an honor to have known Ray, and to have been one of his nurses at the Jacobetti Facility! Ray will be missed by all of us! He was a unique soul, and was loved by many! He will never be forgotten! God bless you!

    My thoughts and prayers go out to the family. He was a great guy. I always enjoyed waiting on him when he came out for a fish fry at the Swallow. Take care.

    Ray and Family, our deepest sympathy to you and your family in the loss of your Father. I met your Dad once many years ago and still remember what he told us about how to replace a window.
