On April 29, 2006, family and friends gathered to celebrate the life

A celebration of Ray's life took place on Saturday, April 29, 2006 at Shell
Ridge Community Church in Walnut Creek, Ca. Irene Jennings and the entire Jennings family wish to thank all those in attendance.
Mere words are not adequate to express our deep appreciation for all the efforts on the part of those who spoke, sang and
helped with the refreshment tables.
