So sorry to learn of Raymond's passing. He was one of my teacher's at the Academy and then later my neighbor in Barnet when I was married to Stanley. Been many years since I have seen him but I am glad to read he continued to farm, as it was obvious that was his love. My sincere condolences to Paula and all the family. I hope the god memories and your faith will sustain you during this difficult time.

I remember Raymond fondly. I can clearly picture him out near his barn in Barnet. I was young, but I remember the winter my father helped with the sugaring. My parents loved having Raymond and Paula as neighbors and enjoyed their friendship throughout the years. Paula, you and your family are in my prayers.
