Default Some ramblings on Ray ❣️

Many of us had the good fortune to sail with Ray and Helen, on what I think was their 60th and 65th anniversary. We thought how wonderful on one of these special days to surprise them with a gift...so we put the idea out there, and got so many people putting into the kitty, it was amazing! We got them a beautifu piece of art glass, and we sent them on an elegant dinner date to the Victoria and Albert Resaurant at the Grand Floridian at Disney World. They were held in such high regards by Cruisemates,it was a beautiful thing...

A funny Ray story: early in Cruisemate's history, when we were all getting to know one another, while chatting with Ray, he said to me, can I send you a picture of me? I said okay warily, because I had recently been sent some photos via CM of a stalker in speedos by his pool, who liked me a little too much. So Ray sent it, and back in the day, printers were so slow. As I waited and waited, inch by inch as it printed, it finally showed a lovely portrait of Ray & Helen...lol..I sighed big time..He had me at hello...❤️

Trip, with her book & tea!
