My late husband William "Jack" Horner was Ray's cousin. When Jack and I traveled to PA to visit relatives there, Ray met us as we were entering unfamilar roads. He made sure we reached our destination, and participated to make our family visits enjoyable. Ray's thoughtfulness was much appreciated. Deepest sympathy, Dorothy Horner
