I was Barmitvah-ed at Tree of Life. I remember after the ceremony, going downstairs where a luncheon was served. I was laughing and joking with my friends in innocence like we did any other day (I mean, the bar mitzvah was my parent's idea). As I thought about the shooting last night, I reconnected with that innocence and wondered why on earth anyone would want to do violence or hurt anyone in a place like that (or anywhere, of course). Peace to all.

Richard,

Thank you for saying it the way you did. I wouldn't want to add even one word.

" Adam and Gusky family,

Ray's passing was a great shock to me.  I, too, knew Ray well since Kindergarden and the house on Hobart St.  He was a vigorous and vital person who influenced everyone and every situation he touched.  I'm so sorry for your loss.  I know so many of us feel it is our great loss, as well.  Ray will be sorely missed.

Bless You,

Richard Fried"

 

Reading the outpouring of heartfelt feelings from fellow classmates of Ray, has been an inspiration to me. The collective grieving and sense of loss, has been a comfort to me. This is one more instance of Ray's beneficial impact on everyone he knew.

Emelie,
As the only classmate from D.C. who had a lot of fun at the reunion (the other 2 didn't come) I'd like permission to secede from DC, temporarily, and join Maryland in a possible post reunion get together. Since they won't allow us to become a state, we're forbidden from holding post reunion activities, too.

Hi Howard,

It has been a long time. You are one of the people I remember being around in school from the very first years. I'm pleased you've done well writing a number of books. I've been trying to finish my first and only novel for quite a few years. Knowing it can be done offers me encouragement.
