  2. Our deepest sympathy to Sylvia and all the family on the passing of Ray. We were so glad that we were able to have a wonderful chat with Ray when Barry and his son participated in the Rams Head Shield with Port Fairy. We always enjoyed our chats when Ray and Sylvia came into Port to do their shopping. Ray you were one of a kind shall miss our chats and laughs. Enjoy all the blessings you have earned. Cheers you were one in a million. Liz Mercovich and Garth Palmer and all of the Port Fairy Angling Club
