Dear Aunt Lyla, Marty, Ronnie & Lyla Rae, Mom and I wanted you to know that Uncle Tom loved your dad very much and he had very fond memories on you, Aunt Lyla, going to school. We want you to know that you are in our thoughts and we are very sorry that we couldn't attend Uncle LuRay's funeral. Mom wasn't feeling very well at the time and there was no way she was able to fly but we were thinking about you. Love, Lisa & Jean Baporis

Auntie Lyla, Marty, Ronnie and Lyla Rae, Wish I could be there. Uncle LuRay was a bright light in my childhood with all his laughter and teasing, and I've really missed him terribly since moving out West. Know that I love all of you, and know that my heart and prayers are with you. I'm cutting my trip short in North Carolina to come see you all. Will be in touch to let you know when. With you in spirit, Debbie

Sorry I could not be at the service on Friday. Unfortunately my flight from Houston was cancelled due to the hurricane. Just want you to know that my thoughts and prayers were with you. LuRay was a great guy and I feel blessed to have known him. Hope we can get out to Appleton to visit again soon. Love, Kari
