Dear Minnie, Catherine, Ray, Brenda, Mark and Richard,

Please accept my most sincere condolences. It is with a heavy heart that I write this. I'm sure you all are already missing Ray, Dad, Father-in-law. There is a very large gap in the universe and, I'm sure in each of your hearts.

You have been in my thoughts and prays since I first heard this tragic news from Brenda. I continue to pray for you all.

I had the privilege of knowing Mr Sousa or who I was lucky enough to call another Dad for more than forty years. He was the kindest man I ever knew and was always there for me. Some of my greatest childhood and adult memories happened at the Sousa house with him there. His laugh was infectious and he was always ready to eat some sweets with you. I will forever have a place in my heart for him and will truly miss him.
