Subject: Happy Birthday Ray...
In reply to: Sam 's message, "I wish we could still be chillin' with Ray Gillen" on 06:34:22 04/29/04 Thu

Yesterday--May 12--was Ray's birthday. He'd be 43 if he were with us today.

His was a face that would have aged so beautifully, but we have his wonderful memory, and of course those amazing songs and albums, that have done so instead.

Ray wasn't with us long enough, but I have always sensed that it was his purpose--to touch and inspire, not to linger. His impact on those who knew him and even more amazingly those who didn't is astounding. I'm not always so sure he's gone, because he just seems incredibly present... something profound about this man continues to resonate for so very many. And so in that way he left behind for his family, friends, and fans the ultimate gift.

Happy birthday, Ray.
