I only knew you for a short time,
but I will never forget you.

From a Marine friend,

19 Mar 2004

Ray, we were friends in Dominguez High in Compton, California. You were a great friend. After I joined the Army I saw in the paper that you were killed in action. I will miss you old friend, but never forget you and the sacrifice you made in the name of freedom. "Semper Fi!" Marine, you were a good Marine.

I knew you at Dominguez High School. You were always very sweet to me and once fixed my broken-down bike. I was saddened many years ago when I heard of your death. Thank you for your sacrifice. You are not forgotten.
