Holly, what a shock to see that Ray has gone to Heaven by his brothers. It has been a long time since I have seen him. I use to spend days with the Wisnefske family after I was out of school. We always called the boys our KISSING COUSINS. I am sorry but I won't be able to make it to the visitation on Tuesday as I have another comminten. But blessings to you and the rest of your family. God be with you . Carol Beck of Manawa, Wi

I haven't seen Ray in many years, but we were in the same class in Winneconne High School, and I want to extend my sincere sympathy to all of Ray's family and friends. May he rest in peace.
