Ray, Sharon, Kristin and JP,
I'm sorry for your loss. No matter what our age it is tough to lose a parent (grandparent). Uncle Ray accomplished a lot during his life. I remember hearing many stories of life on the Prov Fire Department! I am sure that you have so many happy memories. I certainly know that I do!
I remember going to Alvin Street, sitting at the table in the kitchen at that cute breakfast nook.
He got me my first car...the 66 Blue Belvedere that got me through nursing school. He found that while working at Old Stone Bank after he left the fire dept.
I loved to visit on Althea Drive in the breezeway or sit at the kitchen table for a cup of tea and a chat. He grew the best garden in RI. Those "acid free" tomatoes were delicious!
Also Snug Harbor on Atlantic Street at Nana Jane's. Many happy memories of Moran and Schultz families together..
May you keep those close to your heart and know that I love you and am here if I can do anything.

Add Your Condolences
