For those of you that don't know much about recovering alcoholics -- well, now that Ray's obit has made it public that he was one of the group, it's okay to mention some of his comments.  One thing he often told me was not how long it had been since he'd taken his last drink (I had no idea and never asked -- that really was unimportant to  him and to most recovering alkies).  He'd say that when he woke up this morning he gave thanks that he was alive and sober, and that he hoped to get to bed tonight without taking a drink.  It didn't matter how many times he had done that already -- he wanted to do it today.  One day at a time.

I  miss you, Ray, and so do many of us.

I know we've got his house address at our house, and if I don't see it posted here when I get home (about two hours from now) I'll put it up.  I'll run out to the truck right now and see if it's still in the GPS, too.

Nope -- must have been erased.  Sorry -- will post it from home.

Hey -- Jim/Texican:  What was Ray's house address?

Pork Pie........one of Ray's friends doing his part from Germany.

It just goes to show how far Ray's influence has spread.

I am so very sad, Ray was one of the first persons my wife and I met at Bonneville in 2008. We had set up some shade at about the 3 mile and Ray pulled up to shoot pictures. He was very kind and answered every rookie question we asked! In 2009 we saw him again taking pictures, and the first picture he posted that year was a shot of our dog Jodie. Didn't even know he had taken the picture. We will miss him dearly.
