I have pancreatic cancer. The suitability for my cancer is VERY - low. Less than 20%. If you pray .. pray for my family, my wonderful wife, and me. They would be devastated. I thank you before hand, because I do not know when, if, I can come back here. And just know, my friends here, you are ALL super great people!! Kompoz had been a JOY of my life!! Thank you, I hope to come back :) it is up to the Good Lord now. Drop a word in his ear. -ray

Ray, I'm so sorry to hear that. I'm devastated. You will definitely be in our prayers and thoughts! I hope everything turns out as best as it possibly can. Wow, this really puts a lot into perspective. You are so valuable here, and you will be missed for however long you'll be gone. You're one of the great ones here, and such a great person to know! Fight it with all you have, for all of us and others in your life. We will be here.

BrotherR, I stared at the screen, stunned after reading your post. Here's what I do know, you are one tough dude. (My family would say, "easy to love, tough to kill") and those percentages are just the averages. There ain't nothing average about you! Do your thang and make them re-write the medical journals! I will definitely send my best thoughts your way. Hugs!

You guys/girls .. make me tear up with greatfulness!!! You ALL have definitely!! lifted my spirits!!! This is so weird for me, as a select few may know, I have helped to cure four people from cancer over four years, but my own is in the worst place and worst circumstances possible. I need HIS help. So from YOUR thoughts to God's ears!! It could happen.

im f king heart broken over this news! I dont think anyone knows this, even Ray, he was my inspiration for staying with Kompoz forever ago..i was so enamored by his gift of music(& a wee bit of a crush as well) ((: Ray is music> guitar, vocals(#1 tone) piano, orchestration, mixing & mastering and producing. And though he created some amazing across the spectrum audio beauty he was humble as a mofo.. and so nice and so giving with his talent & knowledge. Always made time for music, work & family.. I demand you stay on this plane for a great deal longer.. your my biggest fan! Ok my only fan. ((: Gods speed RAYRAY/Big D! aka ratdaddy aka broRat>

Ray....I'm am so, so sorry to hear....this is one of the most heart breaking things I've seen this week (and there are many) and this should NEVER happen to such nice gentleman as you. I know that you are a believer and the love and strength that comes with that knowledge is everything right now. I am so glad that you have a nice wife to be by your side as your fight this thing. We have a distant family member who was also diagnosed with pancreatic cancer 5 years ago (4th stage). She is still here! Miracles happen every day....we are all thinking about you and many of us will be praying for you (your name is wirtten on my kitchen chalk board, but most of all your name is written in the book of life!) May God bless you and make you good as new! 1Peter 5:7-10. Big Hugs to you Ray....please check in if you are up to it and let us help you to keep strong!!:) Susan

Ray, I'm pretty new to Kompoz and I don't know you, but I've heard your music. It broke my heart when Scotty told me and therefore I wanted to record "Perfect Love" as a tribute to you and your talent. It was a great honour and I hope there will be more versions of this beautiful song of yours. I hope you find strength in Scotty's lovely lyrics. I also wanted to let you know that I am a dietitian and if you ever need help, please feel free to contact me at cozoe@yahoo.com. Stay strong and know that the Kompoz community is here for you.
