Boy Jeff I have read your story in the past but rereading it just now after Ray's death the tears are just rolling off my cheeks. bless you man! Thank you Ray

Jeff, thank you for sharing your experience and photo. Ray has given us all so much. But you were able to give him something back, something that means so much to him, that is an incredible story.

Anthony,

Thanks!  And thanks so much for continuing to help to keep the interest in stop-motion alive with this wonderful forum.

Jeff

He will be sadly missed - creative fantasy is hard to imagine its creators are hard to replace.

And there passes a legend :(

I posted a number of times on Facebook, regarding Ray's passing.  But I should add my thoughts here as well.  Ray was the main influence in my becoming an animator. He was inspiring on so many levels. In my later years, Ray and I became friends, and it was such an honor that he considered me so.  He truly is a giant, and I will miss him.

Just saw this!  Totally bummed out, but he lived a long and wonderful life.  Some people should just be able to live forever, I think.  Bless you Ray, and thank you for your wonderful art.

I understand Dianna Harryhausen has just passed away, too. 

bless them both, farewell...

I just saw that as well as receiving an email from Mike Hankin.
