I’m Raideen’s distant cousin closer to Cheryl and Bill through the years. I just read her obituary and I imagine you are all blessed to have her as a role model. May she rest in peace.
We so enjoyed the times we spent together with Raideen and Clement. We especially enjoyed the times we had going out dancing and all the fun times we had spending the night at each others house and staying up all night playing games. Raideen was always such a wonderful and gracious hostess and such a good cook, we will never forget her homemade spaghetti sauce. We will always treasure those times and fond memories in our hearts.
Raideen was a best friend of so many people. She loved her family and each time she received a family picture and pictures of new members such as grandchildren and and great-grandchildren she would always share them with the dominoes and bunco groups. These groups were very important to all of us. It was always a fun day when it was her birthday and we celebrated at her choice of restaurant. She was kind to everyone and willing to help wherever there was a need. She loved God and her church, and served at many functions throughout the years. Raideen will be missed beyond measure. Our world was made better by her.
Aunt Raideen was always a wonderfully positive person and so friendly to me and my brothers growing up. Though we lost touch over the years after Uncle Clement died, I thought of her frequently.
All of you are in my thoughts and prayers.
Great Memories of you and our times together. Love and Peace to you Aunt Raideen and those you loved and left behind.
Love you mom. Give dad a big hug from me
