Remembering past years, like 2017...Why 2017? Because in January, 2017 we got married. What? Really? You're kidding! No, it's true. After "going together" for 29 years, we decided to officially tie the knot. So, at a very small, quiet ceremony at the Oro Valley Church of the Nazarene, we exchanged vows.
Here are a couple of photos of the event:
Above, L-R: Burt Schneider (Best man), Ray's daughter Karen, Groom (Nervous), Bride (blushing), Renee's brother Lee and his wife Becky. Officiating was Pastor Craig Coulter.
Below, we even got to enjoy the traditional wedding cake.

RAY'S NEW BOOK
NOW AVAILABLE AT AMAZON.
Soft cover trade paperback and digital for Kindle HERE.
2019 was a tough year. After a painful fight with esophageal cancer, our sweet daughter Karen lost her life, Aug. 16 in the same hospital in Phoenix where she was born 50 years ago.
Her husband Ben attended to her with great devotion and love during that difficult time. We are thankful her suffering is over; now we are suffering with her loss. She was such a loving, gentle soul. We miss her terribly.
The outpouring of support to Karen before and after her passing was overwhelming. Visits, calls, cards, messages...if we haven’t thanked you personally for all you have done, please forgive our carelessness.

Thanks for joining us here so we can let you know the latest in our lives. We are looking forward to a better 2020...last year was rough.
But, we pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off, and keep trudging onward and upward. Mostly by staying busy.
Renee has her horses and animal charities.
Ray is busy writing, speaking, and coming up with new ideas plus helping with various charitable projects.
And, Buddy...he enjoys barking at coyotes and javelinas, but his main job is Director of Family Happiness.
