From Mr. Xcrafts family...It reads as follows...
Dan and Georgene...

Dad Loved the Swamp!
He had so much fun with all the bantering. He took great joy in Monkey suceeses and cried along side them in their sorrow.
There were a few he always hoped to meet-and some he was so overjoyed to have had the opportunity to meet.
He was amazed to have met you and gotten a " noogie " in person! He loved your spirit and how you wore your heart on your sleeve. he saw you as very kind and generous. He Admired You.
He wished he could be as open as you with his emotions. He believed you two were very much like him and " his Bev "-only better.
You have their love and strength-but you realized that far younger and sooner than he.

Thank you so much-and Keep the oil in the lamp.

Signed...The Family of Ray Weldon

It has taken me some time to post this, the emotion as I read this was overwhelming for me.

This story brings back memories of the night that I had a bucket on my bucket list overflowing.
It was at a monkey meeting at Foxwoods Casino February 2009? This pic was taken after they settled down. I can't find the actual noogie pic.

I think of Ray everyday, as he liked to watch TMC and the old movies as I do. I know that Ray is watching them in heaven with Bev by his side.
