Sending condolences and deepest sympathy to the Groves and Rimkay families on the passing of a dearly beloved lady and special cousin to the Mercer family. Ray was very fond of all his Rimkay cousins and in his good days always looked forward to family gatherings and time spent together. Wishing you all comfort and peace at this difficult time.
