Coach was always watching out for us. One day I ran passed his office crying and into bathroom, he had one of the girls check on me. I told them I was okay but my pawpaw had died. When I came out he was at the corner hall and nodded his head as to say it'll be okay. I will never forget it. That was the day I realized teachers were there for us. God Bless

I remember Raymond growing up with Lois, Micah, Laura
We had fish frys, BBQs and pony rides at The Farm with the Blaney clan. There was so much fun and happy times. Raymond was the understated and quiet man but had so much substance and subtle compassion. He will be sorely missed.
