To John, Gail, and everyone,

I am so glad I happened to be looking at the obituaries in The Eagle today and discovered your Dad had passed. I loved to talk gardening with Ray after church on Sundays. I still grow his heirloom Italian pole beans (the large flat green ones with purple streaks) every year from the original seeds he gave me over twenty years ago. I even sent some of the seeds to a man who grows heirloom vegetables in Iowa and he now sells them in his seed catalog! I think of Ray every spring when I plant those beans, and now that he's gone planting them will be a little memorial to his memory.
