To the Tate Family: I was in Ray and Mariam’s ward in Vernal. I have such found memories of Ray teaching Sunday School and his stories during class. My heart goes out to you. May you be blessed during your time of sorrow.

I will always remember Ray for his kindness and love for me and my family during very difficult times. He was the ever faithful home teacher who brought the spirit into our home month after month. I appreciate his and Miriam’s kindness and her wonderful meals every Thursday evening for months.
I so enjoyed his Gospel Doctrine lessons and learned so much from him. He and Miriam are two of God’s most valiant servants. I will be ever grateful for their friendship and their influence in my life.

So sorry to hear of your loss. I enjoyed hearing the story you told of your dad’s integrity and character.
I want you to know I’m thinking of you and keeping you and your family in my prayers.
— Amy Richardson
So sorry we were not able to be at n SLC to attend dinner he Services for your husband and family her. Know that he was loved more than words can tell by the White family! A loving, wonderful, dedicated home teacher (he ministered before it was popular)!! He put up with the kids calling hi Bro. “Tape”!!
He indeed is a master teacher and always will be! And he was a miraculous, stable voice he f reason when called to serve for a young inexperienced Bishop as Exec Sec.
We also appreciated the opportunity in later years to come to the house and watch BYU sports!
How we love your dad and your family! Know the world has lost a great man, but heaven has rejoiced at his return!
May heaven comfort and console you through this transition! Know our thoughts and prayers are with you!
With our love,
Codi & Wanda White & Family
And remember, “Oh frog fuzz!” and your Dad loves you and if anything changes, he will let you know!!

Dear Miriam, Alice, Steven, George, Helen and Amy:
Please accept our deepest condolences on the recent passing of your beloved husband and father. We have continuously been in Grangeville since 1958, and well remember you and your family. Ray was the last Branch President and the first Bishop of the Grangeville Ward, before your family had to move in the early 1970’s. We loved you and him then and we love you and him now. He will be busy on the other side of the veil, where you and he will have a grand reunion, together with Ann.
