  1. My prayers goes out to the family for their loss. I will always care for him, and now he is at peace.


  2. Once I knew what it was to rest upon the rock of God’s promises, and it was indeed a precious resting place, but now I rest in His grace. He is teaching me that the bosom of His love is a far sweeter resting place than even the rock of His promises. God will comfort and keep us all. Rest in His everlasting comfort, grace and mercy that endureth forever!

  3. Our prayers and thoughts are with this family during your loss. May God give you the real peace of knowing that Ray Charles is at rest now.
