Hey guys. My dad died this morning.

Had some heart issues we just found 2 months ago. From that, dramatic weight loss and didn't know why.

Finally got him admitted to the hospital early last week. Found cancer. Lots of it. Pnemonia too. They relesed him to home hospice care on Friday.

Walked to the bathroom this morning and was tired - as usual these days after that. One large cancer was wrapped around one of the lungs.

He passed peacefully when he laid down. He was in a lot of discomfort recently, so I thank God for taking him to rest now. I'll find peace soon too after I get thru this flurry of activity.

Just needed to talk to a few thousand folks right now. Talk to you soon.

Oh yeah. He's Ray Sr.

Very sorry to hear of this unfortunate loss. I know how it is to lose a parent as I have lost both of mine.

You are in our prayers.
