I also want this photo of Ray and we other motorcycle buddies. I don't recall the year, but I think we were all chilling out at one of the Harley stores. I hope the photo displays well.

I am very sorry to hear Ray has passed. My sincere condolences to Ray's family and friends. I met Ray years ago at our local McDonald's when I stopped for coffee on the way to work. I joined Ray and other friends in our little mckyd corner where we chatted about all kinds of topics: computers, news, etc. We became friends during those morning stops. We also got together with other friends and had fun motorcycle rides on the Parkway often including lunches on our rides. We had a great time. Ray was a good friend. Wayne
