Please accept our sincere sympathy at this sad time and our love as well. Ray was very talented and had a great sense of humor! Loved his laugh and his little shuffle. I remember he came into the Causeway and had a pumpkin he had carved for Halloween. I never seen so much detail. I don't know how he did it. Still best carved pumpkin I've ever seen. We all went on a great camping trip. Standing by the fire telling jokes and making fun of each other. We laughed so much!!! It's been 26 years ago and I remember it today because we were with Ray. He always would have something funny to say. He was one of a kind!!! You couldn't help but to love him. Please know that we consider ourselves very fortunate to have been friends over the years. We all will miss Ray but we will never forget him, how could you forget that laugh and personality!!! Lu and your family are in our hearts.❤️ Bobby and Kathy

To the Cooper family,
I wish to express my sincere condolences on the loss of your dear loved one. By the words of others it is obvious that Mr. Cooper was a loving, kind and deeply loved person, that is already missed by those who knew him. Our Heavenly Father is aware of the anguish and sorrow you are experiencing and is here as a source of comfort during this most difficult period (2 Corinthians 1:3,4 & Psalms 55:22). In the days ahead, I hope that the kind expressions of family and friends will be another source of comfort and encouragement. I am truly sorry for your loss.
