I always remembered Mr Raymond as wonderful Christian man. He was someone I remember as young boy as our neighbor on 3rd street in the Oakland Mill village. I feel blessed to have known such kind gentleman. My sincere sympathy to his family!

I am so sorry to learn of Mr. Raymond's passing. He was such a kind, strong, and quiet man. I was happy to have spoken to him during Christmas and share a few thoughts. I apologize for not paying my respects in person due to being in a hearing and people's abhorrent behavior on Wednesday. Regardless of my absence, I off your my respects and my prayers as our family pays tribute to Mr. Raymond; a very fine man. Lee, Carol, Joseph, Amelia.
