Memories and Condolences

Sherry Henderson, Jones, MI

Sorry to hear about Ray. I first met Ray when I was a small child. My father worked for him for many years. I grew up next door to "Keifer & Sons" and every time Ray would see me playing outside or I would yell out the window to him (to which I got into trouble for because young ladies do not do that) he would stop and at least smile and say hi. I don't know if he realized how much that meant to me but I'm pretty sure he had a clue. He helped me to learn that not all men were mean and abusive. I think he also knew that some of his employees took a few minutes longer lunch break occasionally when school was out to finish our basketball game but he never said anything to them.

I first met Ray and his brother Ken when I joined Four Lakes Country Club in the 60s. I always enjoyed playing golf with Ray, or just talking to him for many years. My sincere condolences to Jim, Bill and their families.
