Dear Mrs. Myers I met Ray when I was hired at Texas Eastern in 1972. I went from cutting brush on the right of ways to being Ray's "welders helper".  What a great guy to learn the trade from. I was a kid of 21 (now 65) and Ray was like a big brother. I went on to another career and thought about Ray often thru the years even though our paths never crossed. You had a great guy!  He will be missed by all who had the good fortune of knowing him.

Dear Mrs. Myers, I first met Ray when I came to work for Texas Eastern in 1986. He was the epitome of that close-knit family, always with a grin and something to encourage others in the work day. He will be missed by many of us at Spectra Energy. Please share my condolences with your family, and may God bless you through this time of grief. Tim Lotz

Myers Family, On behalf of the Rollin family, our deepest sympathy during this difficult time.  Having been an "adopted"  member of the Myers family since I was a little girl,  I have sweet memories of Ray over the years, including many summer softball games watching Ray & my dad play.  I cannot attend Ray's memorial service Thursday, but I send my love and hugs to everyone.   Praying for comfort.  You will be in my thoughts tomorrow.

Looking at obituaries as I do every day on the net, I saw Ray had passed, and that was a total shock, last time I saw you both was at Paul's funeral, I knew he has issues but I didn't realize how serious. You are in my prayers, as well as your family.  One afternoon a friend and I went to Holly and she asked several people where you lived (I thought you lived in Holly) but not one we asked, knew of you or Ray. So I assumed you had moved. I'm sorry Ruthann, it's tough and it hurts. God Bless
