    wow, its going to be diferent around here. When i read the title of this thread,my heart dropped. I didnt know him that well but i sure did respect his helping me, seemed like a really nice guy. Always helping me out,even when i was asking stupid questions lol.

    I'm a Christian,and will be asking prayers for Ray's family in my church. Praying for you erica and the family also.

    He was HUGE part of evrything Lincoln, this club as well as others, I cant really say anything right now except how sorry I am. When we last talked a month ago or so he was in good spirits and we had a great conversation as usual.

    Ill miss his phone calls whenever I would pick up I would hear "Whats up kid?" I so loved heraing that because I am OLD!!!

    One GREAT friend GONE!!! I am so sorry Erica. If there is anything needed in any way please call.

    as long as I have known Mark VIII's, I have known about Ray, and who he was.
    He has never written a bad word pointed in my direction, no matter where I spend my time.

    We had only exchanged a few emails, but we seemed to be cut from the same tree in many ways...

    he, like I, would spend time helping others, or posting technical info to help anyone that needed it along the way.

    I knew him no more than words of text on a page...but I liked him.

    Ray...R.I.P.

    we will ALL miss you.

    I did not have the pleasure of meeting this fine gentlemen, but from reading many of his posts and this post I see that we have lost a piece of the puzzle. My sympathy to all friends and family.

    I'm beside myself, i dont know what to say...man this sucks, ill miss ya ray, wanted to meet him this year at boscobel, we talked alot, he was a suspension and electronics guru, and helped me figure out my mistake when i installed his switch wrong. i would bounce suspension ideas off of him and he always went above and beyond. lvc has now had 2 great losses in a very short time. Erica our deepest sympathy's for your loss, and im not sure if ray pissed anybody off on lvc he helped everyone he could

    I never know what to say when a horrible thing such as this happens, Ray always answered everyones questions & Knew his Marks. I never met him but I could tell that he was a good guy.

    I am so very sorry for your loss & I really don't know how to put it into the right words.

    I remember talking to him. I'm sorry for the loss. I'm not sure what will happen with his Lincoln, but remember that there are a lot of us here to help.

    Truely UNBELIEVEABLE. I recieved a call from his dad this morning (saturday) and was absolutely speechless and crushed about the news. Ray had helped me dozens and dozens of times with my lincoln right in his driveway and I also went to several car cruises with him and we'd have our Mark VIII's perched in the corner and they got a suprising amount of attention. Ray also did everything without ever asking or expecting anything in return, truely a great guy. I'll also never forget his great sense of humor and ability to make me constantly die of laughter lol.

    Rest in peace buddy.
