Through a long-time work relationship at Pioneer Natural/Energas Company, Ray and Gay both became very special and significant in our lives. Gay had a laughter that came from the depths of her spirit and heart and when it reached her sweet face, it bubbled life over to the rest of us. I remember that so well and can hear it now. Time and distance often seperates friends, but thankfully the memories in our hearts are embedded there forever, and we have them for both Gay and Ray. May the peace and rest of God be your comfort in these days.
