Ray sometimes thinks of the good old days and he liked … “Hudson cars and the slower pace of life” in those days. He is very grateful for modern technical advances which, “Kept me from having a stroke or heart attack last year.”
He is proud of …
“Four great children, and our grandchildren. Also I have driven over 5,000,000 miles safely and was a self employed truck driver with my own truck for several years.”
Ray’s message to his classmates is …
“Come to the reunion !!! That’s when I can be long winded.”
“Hope to see many of you there.”
