Today I met Ray's youngest sister and her family.

They were so appreciative as I turned his belongings over to them.

On the dining room table his camera case was opened. As his niece

lifted his camera from the case she also ripped my guts out. Never

would she know that my first connection with Ray was through his

camera. As the Canon came out of that overloaded case I was "Shot with Canon."

Now I really know how much I miss him.

Some things are difficult. Today was impossible.

That man was family. Not just to me but to the Bonneville family also.

We have lost a most unique person.

When you are at home and an event is being held without pictures and a personal

note about each racer, our LSR family will feel it also.

Doc Freud,

how similar my connection starts with Ray.

it was his very first day at the salt, this was before he had his tough heart surgery, he had parked his car close to the impound, there was no vendor busy to this time.

He had a wonderful old analog camera in his hand and some of this very fancy digital, so I  stopped and walked over to him. Found out that he was the first time out and was both a computer and a photography nerds....so I showed him my equipment...and one of his first comment was..."I have to think about"...seeing all this bodies (three) and lenses (five)...most impressed him my 14 pounds heavy (metal) 300 mm 2.8 lens.....yeah...shot with Canon....my first Canon I bought in 1975....1978 I had my first A1....later I update this equipment to the newest stuff at the market......all this we talked about....and later Ray done the same....what a smile in his face when I gave him my spare Canon 5D when his 7D was in the refurbish....from there on he was the owner of this 5D...and one happy guy...

May be I was one of some people who took care with my "bad influence" (or more my camera equipment) which got him in the position he was at last for the speed community.

When he went through my photo work he asked me a hole in my stomach (as we say in Germany)....it was very interested to hear his questions....and I was surprised, too....

Ray was a excellent photographer with a great eye for the picture....also in a different way as I....luckily, this makes photography so wonderful, when photo artists creating their own view of a picture....when Ray and I done together a photo shooting (like the Target 550 at Bonneville) the result was totally different....and we both looked on each other picture at the computer screen....WOW, THATS A GREAT SHOT, YOU DONE....we was never competitor...we only pushed as "higher and higher"...and we was a d a m n good team.

Ray's house in Taylorsville was my house....he gave me the key, I had there a sleeping room, I could be there also if he was away....I think he very enjoyed my company when I was at his place....and always we was working on one of his cars.....

There from was coming "the two world tallest dwarfs"...one day we worked on the BURB...which was very tough for us, so short we are....and so I said to Ray...here are working the two world tallest dwarfs.....it end up that from time to time our emails was signed with....the younger dwarf....the older dwarf...

I will miss my older dwarf....hope they got there upstairs a proper photo shop...

Freud, Pork pie great words and history .Rays was a good friend and we talked often over the years. He sent me some great photos and never ask for a dime. It's not going to be the same on the salt but every time I look at floating mountain I know he we be there looking over his favorite spot on earth. God Speed Ray.

I did send money to Ray quite a few times - to compensate him for the photos he took and provided not only to Nancy and me but also to the website.  But he was certainly humble (if that's the right word) about the $$ -- in that he wouldn't tell me what he expected, wanted, or even thought was the correct amount.  He'd leave that up to me.  And that's one reason I started encouraging you folks out there to send money directly to him (vs. through this site) - not only to give him as much as he could get, but also to offer further proof of how much his work was appreciated.  I hope we all will remember that attitude and send some money to the others that do our great photography out there, whether it be Pork Pie or Tony Huntimer and so on.  We're fortunate to have people that enjoy giving us great photos -- let's make sure they all know how much we appreciate 'em.

The 'burb is back running. A fuel pump and a salt infested relay have been replaced.

Pump in a tank is a challenge when all of the attachment points have been salted

for the past few years. Some twisted off. Others required a rattler.

I'll deliver the rig to Ray's sister on Tuesday. The next item is the open house

in Taylorsville March 23.

I wish he was going to be there.

Doc:

You are a good man getting Ray's Burb in good running order before it's returned. As for the 23rd, I am one that believes Ray will be there. You may feel his presence or he may nudge you to tell a story or he may just observe... but he will be there. Any person that gives so much of themselves lives forever in our memories.
 
I wish I could be there.

OK fellows. Some more patience. I am working to get a new web elf. This time I will learn how to

do the posts myself. Then I won't have to rely on someone else to do what I should have been doing

all this time. Ray started to teach me. Then we divided duties and both of us were happy.

I'll still post on Landracing.com but I need to get Target550.com, H.A.M.B and Facebook active also.

Someone will pull my sneakers out of the quicksand.

Without Ray to make multiple posts I will just do this on Landracing.com.

It's our Mothers Day wish for all of the Mothers that put us on this planet.
