Mr Raymond was such a wonderful person, I always loved to hear him playing his guitar and sing. I also remember a time or two that he and Mrs Mary Ann would dance the jitterbug. I can just see him now singing and playing for the lord now in heaven. Praying for each and everyone of you, he will be missed dearly.
