You all might remember the great Veteran’s Day event that Ray and his group hosted. You can read that all HERE if you missed it.
What you don’t know is that Ray truly went above and beyond.
“I really don’t know why but for some odd reason, I always remember Paul Harvey coming back from a commercial break and saying, “And now for the rest of the story.” Well, I can now tell you the rest of the story from veterans dinner.
This summer I learned that two of the parishioners are British RAF (Royal Air Force) veterans. After some research, I learned that the RAF flew Spitfires. I then went on a search for Spitfire fabric and located some in the UK. I purchased it and had it sent to me. I then made each of the gentlemen a quilt and presented it to them last night.
Total surprise!! Very well received. So here are pics of those two identical quilts. And now you know the rest of the story.
Thank you one and all for your generous, unending support.”
If you didn’t know how much of a stand-up guy Ray was before, you surely know now. What a great job to go above and beyond to include everyone in the special event. You’re simply the best Ray!!
