  3. Dr Raymond and Family
    I am deeply sorry for the loss of your wife and mother. I remember you, Dr Raymond as a caring physician when I worked on 3 south and when our girls were at BHS together. I met Margie a few times and she was a devoted wife and mother. Her family was the most important part of her life. She always had that special look when she looked at her husband and talked about her kids. I know she will be missed by her family and friends but knowing she is a peace hopefully will give you some comfort.

  4. Dear Dr.Raymond,

    difficult days.
    God bless you
