Ray was a great guy!
HE was always available to lend support to those PWP's who needed it.

HE was well respected in cinematic circles too. His "It ain't TV,its brain surgery was a good documentary of DBS procedure.

I will miss his sense of humor.

He was very "real".

He called us as soon as he heard we were even considering DBS. He pointed us to his website. We thought he was just another guy who had PD and was interested until we saw his site - then we realized he was a very talented, caring famous man! When we talked to him it was as f he lived next door for years!

yup, Ray was one of those rare people who made you feel like you were his best friend and that you had known him for years. He will be missed.
He willled his remains to research at Georgetown university.

I never met Ray in person. We just talked quite a bit via email, and once in awhile by phone. He had sent me a couple of different versions of his documentary and offered to assist me however he could with a project I was working on. Again, while we never met in person, I would definitely call him a friend. He was just a good human being and we sure need more people like him in the world, not less.

Ray, you will be missed.
