THE LAST POST

I could have sold it all, but I tell you what, to give it all away to the right person is an amazing feeling. I'm getting short on my days due to my cancer. My Fiero, parts, & collectables do have a little value but in the bigger picture with where I am in life the value was small compared to the joy I gave one of my closest, & longest friends to day when I gave him & his wife all of our Fiero stuff & Fiero.

He is a car guy with an 85 Grand Am, so I know it will be well maintained & cared for. He only had one stipulation that was if any of my kids want it back when they get to a point that they could manage a hobbie car all they would have to do is ask.

So I guess that is another chapter closed in my life, the Fiero chapter. It sure was a fun one. This forum has been so helpful over the years keep it going. Ray

Ray, I'm real sorry to hear of your serious health issues... but glad to see that you've been given some measure of happiness by bringing some joy to a friend. What more can we do in life, eh?

I hate to see anyone go from cancer -- it took my wife's sister. But it's good to know that your car is going to a good home. Ask him to join Pennock's.

Ray,

It was an honor and my privilege to chat with you at the Tyler Shipman show a few weeks ago. As a fellow cancer victim I can only hope that the rest of your days are filled with great memories and the people you love and cherish. Thank you for all you have done for the Fiero community and for all of us at the Turkey Days gatherings.

I bid you peace.......

Dr. W.

My aunt passed from cancer a few years ago. It takes a strong person to fight, and a stronger person to give up personal gain for the happiness of someone else. You are obviously a good man, and both you and your family will be in our prayers. I havent had the pleasure of meeting you, but only hope I'm so lucky to do so in one venue or another. God bless.

A very heartwarming post that I hope is still one of many more. I've seen too many lost to cancer and way too many close to home. I very much wish you well in whatever lies ahead. Much respect.

... there are no words I can add .... but you can rest assured you have done right and made the people around you happy. I never had the honor to meet you Ray and hope one day to cross your path on the great roads in the sky. I have the feeling someone will be there to greet you .. like Tyler Shipman for he too has left us too early.

greatest regards from the north side of the border ....if there is anything I can do as a favor to you please ask

Danyel

Ray,

I was just thinking of you on Sunday. You and your family continue to be in Carol's and my prayers.

Still haven't got off my butt to frame and hang you wonderful Fiero spreadsheet that I won at the Shipmans. Thanks for doing that. Your hospitality on our journey will always remembered.

God Bless.
Jeff

I just pray that the good Lord gives me a chance to say my good by's to the ones I love. My Grandfather had a fight with cancer he lost, but it ment so much to everyone that they got to spend time with him before he went home.

Wish I could have been at the Frazze show, I would have loved to meet you Ray. I too have lost family members due to cancer, and it's a horrible thing. I wish you the best my friend, and enjoy the time you have left with us.

We all know that we will die... I believe the time we spend on earth is just part of our journey. Some die with no warning, no pain. Some have time to prepare for death, like you giving all of your Fiero collection to a friend....but have to endure the pain. May your final days be pain free and filled with happiness.

Ray, it was such a pleasure to hang out with you at your beautiful home on the way to the Tyler Shipman show. I just wish we could have stayed a little longer. It was a pleasant surprise when I was parking the cars on Saturday morning for the show, when you pulled up to enter your car in the show! Keep you spirits up1 You and your wife are in my prayers.
