Harriet Tedley

From Gail Shapiro Boimov In Loving Memory of Ray Shapiro. My brother passed away on Friday, June 7th, leaving behind a legacy of memories and complexities. I'm writing this for my mom and dad, Lois and Harold Shapiro, who loved him unconditionally while they were alive. Ray possessed a spirit that yearned for understanding, connection, and acceptance. Ray's path was a winding one, marked by a lifetime battle with addiction and, ultimately, lung cancer. While these struggles created distance between him and those who cared deeply for him, they do not define the entirety of his existence. He was more than his addiction; he was a son, a brother, a favorite Uncle, and a friend to many, and his journey was marked by resilience, moments of brightness, and two years of sober living, which made him proud. For those who knew him intimately, he will be remembered for his laughter, quick wit, moments of kindness, and a desire for belonging. Although our reconciliation was incomplete, the memories shared remain a testament to the complexity of familial love. In honoring his memory, may we all strive for compassion, understanding, and forgiveness, recognizing that each life is a tapestry woven with light and shadow. Rest in peace, Ray.
