    Dear Mimi and family,

    I am deeply sorry for your loss. I was blessed enough to be in Rey’s presence for a short time, and I learned very quickly that he was a very kind, loving, and gentle soul with a great sense of humor and a great smile. I know there is very little I can say to lessen the pain you guys are feeling, but just know you guys will be in my thoughts and in my heart.


  17. Catherine Doyle says:

    Ray was a welcoming, gentle soul who provided light and laughter to all of us at Greystone Programs when we worked there together. My heart goes out to Nancy, his beloved wife (and beautiful Salsa partner on our boat ride) and his children and grandchildren. Rest in eternal peace.
