    Ray and Dee had a home at lake of the Ozarks, we were always invited to the lake through John and Julie, not only did we always have a good time Ray and Dee always seem to feed us BBQ filet mignon. Great folks I’ve never seen either one of them get excited always go with the flow. Hope we meet again again some day. REST IN PEACE YOU TWO! JOEL AND DEB YOUNG
