Memories Timeline


  1. “Baby Ray”…No-one could ever top the times we had in the hood. And even though you were a crazy muthaf*****…. “Fear” Was NEVER in your vocabulary. You were a good friend, and a down-a** homeboy. You will truely be miss…. But NEVER… Forgotten. Your Homeboy Till the End, Puro Pinche Cantarana, “BOOWINKLE”

  2. Angie, I was so very sorry to learn of Ray’s death. I taught him while he was in Middle School. I share many good memories of him–deep down he was a good young man. I have a hankerchief that his Dad made for me–with wolves on it. I have kept that handerchief in my purse all these many years. I know that God has taken him into Heaven. Best regards, Peggy Milner

  3. Angie, I am so sorry for your loss my prayers are with you. Baby Ray is how I have always known him as. He was in my Head Start class at Villa Serena and he left an impression in my heart. I can still remember his face as a 3 year old like it was only yesterday. Rest assured that he is with our Lord Jesus Christ and free of pain.
