I did not have the pleasure of meeting Kim's father. However, I am thankful for my friendship with Kim and fortunate to know the Quade family and have them as my neighbor. My thoughts and prayers go out to all of you at this sad time. May your happy memories shared with your loved one comfort you at this difficult time.

I've known Ray through Datapoint and especially the health club for 26 years and I, as well as all the members of his beloved "Sauna Group", will miss him terribly. They just don't make them like that anymore. My very best love to Ann, Becky, Brenda, Brent (whose lives we have followed through Ray) and the rest of the family.
