  6. This message is from Victor Tarin—- i can’t go on without taking the opportunity to say or comment on how good this guys was. I came to the United States in 1978. Raymond’s family was the first family I met because my brother Jesse work for Ramon sr. As a total stranger to Raymond, he would always share his bikes with me. We had nothing but he made sure he shared everything with me. As we grew up he and his family always treated me like family. Thank you my brother for being a good person. Fly with the angels!
