Dear Betty, Julie, Garry, Wayne and families,
Sending our deepest sympathies at this very sad time, on the passing of Ray.
I remember fondly over 25 years ago when Mum and Dad (Marie and Paddy Dillon) moved to Lake Boga, and Ray and Betty were one of the first couples to greet and welcome our family to the community. Such a kind and gentle man.
Sending you my thoughts and prayers at this time.
