Uncle Ray, RIP
Uncle Ray had the perfect graveside service: laid to rest under cozy trees; ample crowd of Wranglers and boots Waco friends to see him home; breeze blowing cousin Lisa's Amazing Grace lyrics across the winter grass. When a beautiful person sings, their humanity comes through, and the song is all the more beautiful.
Uncle Ray did us all a favor via provoking a winter family reunion to supplement our summer reunion. I was favored with attention from the lovely former Cotharn sisters of Robinson, TX. That is a good thing. Those women are good lookin.
