Sorry to read of the passing of Ray - we send our condolences. Unfortunitly, I will not be able to attend the services, as I need to be in California this weekend for a reunion of part of Mary's family. Along with Shirley, who is still holding on, you and then I are the next senior members of the Larsen clan. It is interesting how time has flown from our simple lives in Mantua. How fortunate you are to have had a good marriage with a loving companion - I am sure he will be missed.
So sorry to read of Ray's passing. It was my privilege to be introduced to him & Lois when they lived in St. George & Becky came down to visit with them. Special people. Thoughts & prayers are with you.
We were sorry to hear about Ray. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. We have many fond memories. You have been great friends over the years. He was a good man. May the Lord bless you and watch over you. We love you and your family.

My fond memories of you and Ray go back so many years--from the early 1950s to 2007 when Paul died. Paul and I had the highest regard for you both. Ray was a gentle and caring person. I don't know if the weather will allow me to attend his services but want you to know of our love for you and Ray.

Dear Lois and Family
We were saddened to hear of Ray's passing. He was a faithful friend and counselor. His contribution to the community at large and to the Bountiful South Stake was enormous. We feel a deep personal loss that he is gone for now. However, we will always remember his example, his integrity, and his kindness to us.
