I have missed the family since moving. I was quite impressed with Ray and Carol as members of our town. I hope for happiness for the boys and their families. I will always remember Ray at KHBM, and I cannot forget Carol at the Advance. May the Good Lord bless and keep you.

For so many years Ray was the voice of Monticello, and a friend to one and all who knew him. The world will be a poorer place without him. Lisa and I extend our prayers and condolences to Carol and their sons and grandchildren. cliff

Susan and I are thinking about Carol, Roddy and Jeff at this time. We’ve thought about Ray and Carol often since we left Monticello in 1984. We kept up for a few years after that, but hadn’t recently.

Ray used to work at KHBM for my Dad when I was in Jr. High. He had a good air voice. Carol worked there, too. She sold advertisements and he was one of the radio announcers. So sorry to hear about his passing away. He will be missed. I can still hear him laugh.
