Comments

  1. We were dear friends of Bob and Patsy Ray. Knew them in Oklahoma; worshipped with them at Ridgecrest Church of Christ; transferred to Sacramento in 1973 when Peter and Bob were transferred to McClellan AFB with their jobs. Patsy was one of 8 ladies who hosted a baby shower for our dear Patrick who died of leukemia at the age of 20. I missed so much talking to Patsy every week. She was a dear, lovely Christian friend and encouraged me so much during Patrick’s 2 year illness and after his death. My sympathy to Cindy and her family. Alice Astafan, Carmichael, California.

  2. Cindy, Jennifer and family, we extend to each of you are heartfelt sympathy in the loss of one so dear as we celebrate her Christian life, love for the Lord and eternal home in heaven. We are there with you in spirit.

    God bless you each one.

    Love, Teresa and Lindell
