This is the week of Thanksgiving. The day itself will mark 9 months since we lost Ray. That loss has colored so much in our lives, but it makes me doubly aware of all in my life for which I am truly thankful. I am thankful that I was able to know Ray, if even for such a short time-his impact on my life was indelible. I am thankful that my darling daughter knew such a full and true love. I am thankful that Ray fathered my beautiful granddaughter Rose-she brings joy to our lives! I am thankful that Ray had SO many good and true friends, because all of you can help Sophie to keep her life on track, and can help Rose to become the kind of daughter and person that Ray would have done.

I wish all of you a very Happy Thanksgiving. I hope you will take extra time to count all your blessings and to give all those you love an extra hug and kiss. Victoria Ford Greeley
