  1. Dear family of Ray Sorensen,
    Ray and I were school mates from Spring City Elementary, Moroni Junior High and on through NSH. Living in Spring City we had a lot of fun experiences. I am real glad that I got to see him at our last High School reunion five years ago. You are all in my thoughts and prayers at this difficult time.

    Uncle Ray was such a character! I have witnessed and heard so many crazy stories about uncle Ray over the years! I bet he (“little fella”) and my dad (his big brother Dan) are having a fun party in heaven right now! Praying for you Ron and Paula.
    Love, Stacey Sorensen Rasmuson
