    I talked to Ray's brother tonight and Ray needs our fervent prayers - he is still up and at it but his health issues have started to reach a critical mass - his ipad is not working so they are trying to get it going so Ray can come back to GC

    Bill....thanks much for the update.

    It's helpful that we have someone with a contact to keep up with Ray's health and well-being status.

    What concerns me the most is that Ray has an adequate advocate(s) standing by his side to assist with his needs....other than his medical resources.

    Typically this would be a family member(s) and/or friend(s).

    Most here fully understand the importance of this.

    Thus.......please keep me/us posted if there's more we can help with, in addition to prayer.

    I know I speak for many on this board with this concern.

    Thank you!
    Baz

    I just got a text from Ray's brother Paul- things are not going well- he needs all of us to fervently pray for Ray - he wants us to pray for an easy passing - as I sit here with tears rolling down cheeks I am asking God to peacefully take him home

    Bill, thanks for the updates, particularly while you're having shoulder issues and are suffering yourself!

    Ray-
    Suddenly, I apologize, I feel at a loss for words to communicate anything meaningfully and articulately.

    We love you and are praying for you. Thanks for all you've done here at Gator Country! We would all love to see you in a pain-free state and comfortable. Whatever the Good Lords will may be... we are here in God's trust and love.

    With Blessings and love...

    Go Gators:)
