Subject: RE: 2016 Obit: Ray Downes
Ray was a mate: it was a pleasure and a privilege to sing with him as a member of "Bedlam" as well as playing for "Aussie" bush dances. The reunion tours when he returned to the U.K. each year were great fun, as was visiting him in Oz. I can't really believe that he is gone and that we will now be denied the chance to sing together again; that may sound selfish, but it perhaps suggests how much he meant to so many of us.R.I.P. mate, at least your suffering is over.
