I can remember many evenings after we had closed up the cafe in What Cheer, Ray would come to the kitchen door and ask dad if he wanted to cook another meal, of course dad would never turn him away. So we would take a break visit with Ray, then go back to closing up.
The death of a loved one is so hard to deal with. Take care everyone, sending you all hugs and good thoughts.
