      This is terrible. I've met Ray at Carlisle a few times. He was a great guy.

      I hope I don't have the same flu, I've been fighting it for a week now.

      I think I better go to the doctor now.

                        This is so bad. I am shocked. I spoke to Ray a few times a few years ago when I was going to change my fuel pump in my 96.
                        He was a great guy, I can say no more I am shocked and sad !!

                            Erica, I am really sorry for your loss.

                            I only knew Ray from the forums but he was a great guy all around. I am very saddened by this .
