Rayola (Raye) was the youngest of my female cousins, although we were all close enough in age to play school together. Five of us were students and our oldest female cousin Dorothy (Dot) was always the perfect teacher. We had lots of fun together when we were young and growing up. Then the many years that followed took us all in many different directions. Once in awhile we would get back together again for various reasons and various occasions. I last saw Raye in 2012 and will look forward to seeing her again when it's my turn to move on to her wonderful new location. Until then I will continue to remember her sweet smile and loving heart. See you later, Raye!
