Ray and Leone are the only two folks that I know of who actually stood on a sandbar in the middle of the Mississippi River during their visit to see me in Memphis, TN I have pictures to prove it!

God Bless you Ray and bless you for all the years you cared for Mike. Tell Leone Hello when you see her and we will miss you!
