In Loving Memory of JAMES RAYMOND (RAY) MADISON. Sept. 2, 1921-Sept. 9, 2000 Today has been 1 year since you left us so suddenly. We didn't have time to say good bye. We cannot think of you in death, only the life you lived with love for God and your family and friends. We find comfort in our hearts knowing you are in the Arms of Jesus and your loved ones who have gone on before you rejoicing and waiting for our journey with God on Earth ends. Dad! Papaw! We love and still miss you. Wife, Evelyn, 3 children & grandchildren, family & friends.
