Ray Reiman, may you rest in peace thou good and faithful servant

Of all the wonderful individuals I have been privileged to meet in my career
as a writer, Ray Reiman was at the top of the list. His faithful dedication to
the Church, to friends, and his family were unparalleled and an inspiration to me.
One of the greatest days for me was the time we were actually able to meet and
share lunch together. Thankfully I still have the pictures to remember him. 
He battled cancer the same way he did everything else–with grace, faith and
the knowledge that the Lord’s plans for him were far greater than his own.

I am honored to have called him my friend, and Ray, I know you are soaring with the eagles!
