Ray and I shared ups and downs at PAINTING TECHNOLOGY, We worked together to keep the doors open for many years. I never thought of him as an employee but a friend, I could share good and bad with him. Sometimes we did not see eye to eye, but we always worked it out. My best days were spent with Ray at PAINT TECH. THE BEST EMPLOYEE ANYONE COULD HAVE, Sad when you retired, sad today, but I know you are at peace with the Lord now.
