My Dad. So hard to put into words how much he meant to me. He taught me so much…and many others. Raymond Dodd was a very caring and empathetic man. He cared so much for anybody…the every person…someone on the street, he loved people and family. My father is a treasure, and I miss him so badly.

I called you Little Brother, you called me Nindynan when you were little, My Sons,
Chris & Steven called you Uncle Ray, my husband Rick affectionately called you Raymo or Bubba. Momma called you her baby boy, Daddy called you Ray.
Raymond proudly served his country, loved his family, friends from the old neighborhood of Fair Meadows and the people he worked with at the commissary. He was proud to be a husband, called Dad, being a grandfather and an Uncle. We will miss your smile & contagious laugh, but most of all how you made people feel, that they
mattered to you. You are seeing what “I can only imagine” on this side of Heaven, and one day we will be together again. For now you are missed like no other, Our precious memories will always be present in my heart Little Brother. I deeply miss you and I always will❤️
