I am truly sorry to hear about the passing of Ray. He was a good christian man and I am so glad that I became a part of this family nearly 50 years ago. Bruce and I always enjoyed our gatherings and looked forward to the Robinson's trip to Greasy Creek. I am sure they are gathered again rejoicing in their new home. Mom has joined them as she went home to be with the Lord on December 22, she was also 86. I love all of you and will be praying for all of you., Charlene Hopkins
