    I will miss Ray, he was the highlight to my days at work. He teased me and gave me hugs all the time, he was such a big teddy bear inside. He really became a close friend to me and I will always remember him.

    My thought and prayers go out to Marie and Lester on the loss of their father. Ray was a very much a big part of my life, as was his wife Martha. Its sad to see ones dear to you pass. I will never forget Ray and Martha, and the great times we all had as neighbors and friends in Henriette. RIP Ray, and again my deepest sympathy to Marie and Lester.

    Raymond, many memories will always be present as we reflect back on the wonderful things you did with your life and for others. I personally will never forget your enthusiasm for the family gathering together as demonstrated by your attendance for the first large Lowe family reunion that took place in Brainerd, Minnesota on September 2, 2012. Then again, as another family reunion was planned for July 5th, 2015, you would always ask what is being planned and where will it all happen. It was always evident that your heart was where it should be and that was with family. I personally will also remember many times when you would be asked by my dad (your younger brother) to help out financially with needs such as your parents grave stone etc., you were always willing to be a part in making sure things happened. Your laughter, humor and even though life was not easy, you just kept looking forward to better times. Prayers, thoughts and past memories will not be lost as to your family, your two children, grandchildren and friends. For me, you were the last of 14 siblings and a big whole has now closed through your passing. It is also my prayer that we will see you again throughout eternity, where no more pain or death will happen and until then, you will be able to find rest – see ya later Raymond in a better time and place.

    The Marie and Lester and Raymond’s grandchildren, me and my family want to extend our deepest sorrow for your loss and may each of you stay connected with Raymond’s family and may you find time to reflect back on all the memories he has left you with as you continue your own journey in life. Take care each of you!

    I loved Ray telling me, “It’s my birthday. I’m 94 years old, every day I wake up it’s my birthday!” Well, Ray, you made it to 95! You said you would. Now you’re celebrating the last birth day: birth into everlasting life! I’ll miss you!
