Condolence & Memory Journal

I remember him for his friendly smile. I never saw him when he wasn't smiling. I attended Pleasant Ridge Baptist during the last years of his pastoring and enjoyed him and his charming wife, Delores immensely. May God bless his family with strength, comfort and peace now and in the days to come.

Bro. Ray was my pastor at Escatawpa Baptist Church. He was my spiritual leader, led me to Christ, was a mentor, and came back to Escatawpa to perform my marriage ceremony. Bro. Ray was one of the most influential people in my life who helped make me who I am today. He led by example and everyone loved and respected him. He is rejoicing in Heaven now and has definitely left his mark and legacy on this earth. Until I see you again in Heaven. Thank you for everything you did and meant to me in my life. I was truly blessed to have known him.
