My memory of "Flamin Raymond" was as recent as the other day, though I hadn't seen him for ages and I live in London, England! Oh, what a distinctive laugh he had!! Raymond was part of a circle of friends with and of the age of my older brother, Bob. Yet, like I said, Raymond came to mind just the other day, after so many years. A coincidence? Maybe and maybe not. Bob is gone and now Raymond. Raymond's departure is a fresh reminder to me that I, too, though younger than them, will have to "cross the line of worlds." Raymond's last favor to me, just now given, is to remind me to be properly ready...prepared...for that event. Thanks for your laugh, Raymond...and thank you for the reminder.
