I can't imagine the terrible hurt all families affected by this terrible accident must be experiencing. My heart goes out to all of you. May the peace of God fill your lives and hold you near during this time and in the days ahead. God does provide the strength and endurance needed in each moment we face. I know life circumstances can be very overwhelming and if we can't see or sense God's Presence at the moment, if we continue to look for His Presence and how He is providing or has provided, we will begin to see. You all are greatly loved.

Words cannot express the sorrow I feel for your family. Ray was a special person and a friend to many. Prayers for you and your family during the coming days.
Angie Simpson left a message on November 29, 2012:
Mr. Ray was one of the most caring people I have ever met. He always had a smile on his face and seemed so optimistic about anything that would normally bother someone. He would stop by our office for no reason but to drink a cup of coffee and check on what he affectionately referred to as "his girls". If he happened to stop by on a bad day by the time he left he had us smiling and laughing. He loved his family and it was apparent in the way he talked about his wife, his children and his grandchildren. I consider myself very fortunate to have known him and he will be greatly missed by all that knew him. Rest in Peace Mr. Ray.....you were loved by many and will be missed by all

David Wade left a message on November 27, 2012:
I lost my best friend Saturday night. Ray Ashby was like a brother to me. Ray Ashby was the kindest most gentle man I have ever known. He always had a smile on his face. He would help anyone who asked for his help and sometimes even those who were too embarrassed to ask. Ray was a Christian. He would share his faith in unobtrusive ways. He had a way about him that made you like him. He was genuine in every way. His faith in God was as strong as steel. If you ever met anyone that didn't like Ray Ashby....he wasn't worth knowing. Ray was kind and caring in every facet of his life. I loved Ray Ashby and will miss him more than I can say. I know without a doubt that he is in Heaven with all his loved ones that preceded him. It is our loss and Heaven's gain. I will miss you terribly Ray but I know one day you will greet me at Heaven's Gate when my time has come. God Bless You Ray.
Melodye Tanner left a message on November 27, 2012:
Please accept my sincere condolences. Ray was a groomsman at my wedding and a very good friend when we were younger. The Ashby family is in the hearts and prayers of many of us who loved and admired him. He will be sorely missed.
