Guy Edward Baumgardner in heaven.  Though Ray Ray could not speak or hear, he spoke in a language of love, appreciation and compassion, (many of you may have been fortunate to receive one of his hugs, you will feel it now).  People who got to know him and his intoxicating laughter will remember him for his ability to make you forget any troubles you had (if only for that moment), his noises he made, MOOING, CLUCKING, and  OINKING.  Those of you who really knew him, knew what they meant.  And, if you were fortunate enough to have known him, you will still occasionally hear them!  People could not help but to fall in love with Ray Ray (just being around him). He enjoyed his life of 20 years with his family (though not related by blood).  He was and still is a very important part to his family and will NEVER be forgotten.  He had a wonderful caring family.  He was the catalyst for the Double Rainbow Farm Therapeutic Riding Facility / MLW Stables.  He enjoyed riding his horses, Ziggy and his mini wrangler, Sierra (who was his favorite).  Through the years he blossomed and was able to ride Sierra by himself with a leader.  Grandpa led the way to heaven for Ray Ray and his family that will join him, Grandma Alberta Romaine Baumgardner; brothers and sisters, Sondra and John Long, Milton Wallace and his partner George Wade, Timothy and Kim Wallace, William and Kim Wallace, David Wallace and his partner Jackie Johnson, Tracey Wallace, Jill Baumgardner and Joylyn Erickson and her husband Steve; nieces and nephews, Stephanie and Steve Arnold, Christina and James Kentzel, Randy Hildum and all the great nieces and nephews.

My deepest sympathies and condolences to you Milton and all the extended family. I remember the good times in New Ken with Ray Ray. He was always such a delight and such a joy to be around. He did have a way of making you laugh and feel better no matter what the circumstances.
