EVERYBODY LOVES RAYMOND
There was a young fellow named Ray
Who sat with our group yon day after day.
Through fears dark and some frivolous
He’d listen to all of us
This insightful young fellow named Ray.
Through many tissues and tears
We aired our secrets and fears.
Often times we would laugh
Surely, the best cure by half-
Much better than drowning in beers!
He’d frown or he’d smile
Showing concern all the while.
He’d probe all our issues
And we’d reach for more tissues
While he added more notes to our files!
With dedication he nourished
And his wisdom we cherished.
On every word we did hang
And his praises we sang
For our demons have finally perished!
Our lives we’ll recoup, said our young fellow named Ray
One step at a time, 'pon day after day.
So onwards and upwards, my friends
‘Tis time for making amends-
Thanks to a young fellow named Ray!

This gal from Down Under
Will always remember young Raymond 'Bontana' …
The best M.S.W. in Greater “Toronta”!
