One Condolence to Raymond R. Mitchell

  1. There’s a glorious reunion occurring with Helen right now. I pray for the guidance to live the remainder of MY life in such ways as to earn a similar reunion with them—and all the saints.

    May God provide eternal solace for this gentle, decent soul and friend.

    You have my deepest gratitude and respect, Ray, for the future in freedom for my and my children’s generations, secured by you and your comrades-in-arms.
