  1. Raymond will truly be missed, we had a great friendship for 30 years, I have many great memories of time we spent together. Raymond was very intelligent, funny, & had a great heart, he was a kind person, a good man. Raymond I love you brother, you will never be forgotten. Tim Shiery

  2. Condolence: Condolences to the family, Psalm 23 likens our Grand Creator to a shepherd. How fitting that is when we think of the loving care a good shepherd provides for the sheep he loves.

    Verse 4 reminds us that we sometimes walk in the valley of deep shadow then reassures us that he still is with us.

    May the Great Shepherd prove to be with you, Jennings family, granting you the measure of comfort, faith and strength that you require to endure this moment of darkness.

    Wishing you the peace of God.
