Ray is known for his warm, upbeat, positive good nature and his strong love and admiration for his wife and son. His family is an exemplary family devoted to True Parents and God's providence. He was very pleased about the recent developments in the ministers providence.

He was so excited when he reported how certain ministers "really get it! There are some who really understand Father's vision!"
