Circle of Life

English: Bible in candlelight.

Will we ever find an answer to the many questions surrounding the death of a son?

Will the political and legal system of Pennsylvania ever look at themselves in the mirror and ask, “What would I do if this was my son“?  Would information have been more available?  More cooperation, more compassion for Ray and his family who are desperate for answers, what would you do if Ray were your son, brother of family member?

The Holy Bible tells us in Ecclesiastes Chapter 3:
To everything there is a season and a time to every purpose under heaven.

 “God will bring to judgment both the righteous and the wicked, for there will be a time for every activity, a time for every deed.”

Circumstances or people can take away your material possessions, they can take away your money, and they can take away your health.  But no one can ever take away your precious memories…

It has been a difficult path these  past four years, but I know that God knows where, how and when it ends.

Ray always believed that a person should never give up, and that success was only gained through perseverance.

Every day I pray that we will find justice for such a loving son who eagerly helped those who needed a hand up.  Since he was 14 he raised money for “Jerry’s Kids” through roller skating, before he was old enough to drive.  Later, he would hike or  ride his bike on trail rides to  raise money for muscular dystrophy.

But, where was the concern when Ray needed help?  And, after his death, where was the empathy for Ray, and not oneself?

Where is the compassion today?  As someone said of the events, where is the love?  Where is the loyalty, friends? Why won’t one of you step forward and explain the circumstances leading up to Ray’s death and help fill in the missing information?

We are still waiting….

    God knows the where, when and why Ray suddenly died. I still cannot wrap my head around it – but He does.
    God knows who is lying and who is covering up others lies too. All of those involved from the tiniest withholding of information in the hours after Ray’s death all the way to the lies in court.
    God knows the where, when and how justice will be served. We place our trust in the only One that can give us proper justice and the answers we search for.

    I wonder – will the justice that is eventually served (and even with the cowards and incompentents that are in the PA courts, I have to believe someone is in utter shock and working behind the scenes) be equal to or less than what was (and continues to be) dealt to Ray and his family?

      I agree, totally. Everyone has to account for their life here on earth – eventually. Evil has a way of creeping in and creeping up – who will be the next one to suffer as a result of incompetence and careless officials. It could be one of their own.

    My thoughts and prayers have been with you in your search for the truth, Being the mother of two sons who are like night and day . . . one who had many friends who were always in and out of our house and the younger son who had one good friend at a time. There has to be someone Ray kept in close contact with that could give some info that could help solve the mystery. I continue to wish you good luck and keep you all in my prayers.
