In Memory of Ray

In Loving Memory of

Raymond Wayne Blankenship

February 13, 1984 – October ?, 2017

Don’t be troubled by my absence,

Though I know it brings you sorrow.

It was time for me to go, and I

Was not meant for tomorrow.

I am resting in His mercy,

I am healing by His grace.

I’ll be there with you who love me,

Though you might not see my face.

Love each other, show forgiveness,

Pick your battles, guard your heart,

And remember, if you love me,

We will never be apart.

Survived by his parents Kenneth Blankenship and Marlene Simmons Koykar (Michael), brother Noah Blankenship (Lisa) and their children Logan and Karlie, aunts and uncles Kathy and Bryan Gellman, Michael Simmons (Teresa), Patty and DeWayne Thompson, and Brenda Killian (Bob Godfrey), a host of cousins and friends, and his beloved companion Sarah Morin and daughter Zilia.

I am retired from the public school system. I create magic wands and spells, write mediocre poetry and the occasional freelance magazine article; research local history and family genealogy; I’m an activist and keep in touch with friends, family and archenemies on Facebook, Twitter, What’s App and Word Press. I'm a Fiipina-Cajun troublemaker and trickster. I'm feeling as invincible as Keith Richards these days. Fuck is my favorite word.
