    On behalf of the entire Heggaton family…
    We were surprised, saddened, and filled with grief, to learn of Raymond’s passing. He constantly displayed a certain joie de vive, that hearty,carefree enjoyment of life.
    His jovial laughter was contagious, and he will be missed, by those who knew him well.
    To his closest loved ones we offer our prayers, positive thoughts and healing support as you look for solace at this difficult time of loss. For you, may those fondest memories sustain you through your moments of grief.

    May God bless and keep Raymond safe, and may his rest now be peaceful.
