OC,
Thanks for keeping us abreast of the situation. Would you also please pass my condolences and support to Paule, and let her know that we are here for her.

Ray was about as real as they got, and I will miss him, his humor, and most of all, his joi de vive

See ya at the Bema, buddy!

Gary

Ray and I were perhaps a bit in the minority here (being piano players); we traded a few songs in midi and wave format a few years ago. He was working on an album of gospel piano solos, and we discussed via e-mail how to get a realistic sound from a digital piano. I offered to render his midis to wave using Pianoteq which he like very much. However his integrity resulted in him using his own DP for everything; his strength of character was always obvious.

He offered up any advice he could to help anyone, and freely took advice from others where appropriate. All in all I'd say a very kind, generous, and gentle man, and I for one will surely miss him.

I believe I have a few of his midis on my HDD - I'll play them for you tonight Ray.

Glenn

Hi Paule,Alan from the UK here.
I did Ray a message because you all wanted to hear my
English accent.

I must say how very sad it is to hear the news,to say it
comes as a great shock is an understatement.

I had no idea Ray was so ill.

Of course you have my deepest sympathy,I know no words can
make it better,but time is a great healer.

Best wishes to you all at this sad time.

R.I.P Ray,it was a pleasure to have known you.

Alan

RIP Ray and may God bless the family.

I didn't know Ray well, but he always came across as a heckuva nice guy. His free tutorials on BIAB and RB are a testament to his giving spirit.

He will be missed.

Rest in peace Ray, safe in the arms of Jesus.

1 Cor. 15;51 ¶ Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,
52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.

See you on the other side, brother.

I had the pleasure of assisting Ray on one of his CD's he made for friends and family. The music was all Gospel. Ray loved the Lord and played the Piano in a church band for a while. I know he Blessed many people with his talent and his love of the Music of The Lord.

If you believe the Word of God: To be absent the body is to be present with the Lord. No more suffering for Ray, he is experiencing Joy unspeakable and full of GLORY !

Ray would write Hallelujah in some of his posts here at the forum. He had the Joy of the Lord in his life and ALWAYS encouraged me when I sent him a song I done. He had a great ear and gave it to me straight when my vocal pitch was flat. I admired Ray for many things and will miss him dearly. I also believe we will meet again one day.

Tickle those ivories Ray.

Eddie

I never met Ray of course, but I know he'll be one of those I'll be "Shakin' hands in Heaven" with.
Sorry he has left us, and condolences to his family and friends.

Ray offered to help me with one of my projects. I became too busy and never got around to completing the project, or getting back to Ray. Oh well, I'll miss you Ray...I'll have to wait until we are reunited, then we can jam!
