A memorial bench has been donated by family and friends in honor of Raymond at Dunkin Donuts in Newtown. This was a fond and frequented place for him to spend his time. Whether reading the newspaper, watching TV, or awakening from a nap; he greeted a friend or stranger with a warm smile, an unforgettable story and often a cup of coffee his treat. This bench is to provide a special welcome at the door as it inspires kindness in remembrance, reflection and respect for our dearly loved Raymond.
