Obituary for Raymond Smith
“On the wings of a snow white dove he sent his pure sweet love from the Sky's up above on the wings of a dove. “Today our loved one took his solo flight on the wings of a dove to meet his lord and saviour in heaven. It is with heavy hearts we had to let him go into Jesus's loving arms and to be reunited with family that went before him.
