    The above picture, from Rain Manís Vermont section and our most fun adventure, reminds me again how very much Iím going to miss this warm-hearted, silly, wonderful friend. His gift to the AT community was to invite all into his adventures, and what adventures they were!

    Every greeting a joy,
    Every journey an adventure,
    Every gathering a celebration.
    It has all been "magical".

    Great and funny guy. I have chatted with him since 2007. Met him at the US 421 crossing in 2008 on his July 4 section hike into Damascus. He will be missed.

    Such a sad loss. I've got great photos of him from our camping trips. He will be missed.

    Rain Man's family has arranged for a memorial service via Zoom this coming Saturday, December 6. Here's the Facebook post.

    Dear Friends of Raymond,

    You are warmly invited to a virtual celebration of the life of Raymond Myers
    to be held on Zoom on Sunday, Dec 6th at 3:00 pm Central Time (U.S.). The link is below.


    We will begin the celebration with a recording of the family-only memorial service held in September. There will also be time for sharing your memories and comments about Raymond/Rainman. (Please keep comments and stories to under 2 minutes.) If you prefer to share your comments directly with our family or to have someone else read them during the service, please send them to Raymond's FB account via messenger or to [email protected].

    We look forward to seeing you and hearing your remarks.

    With love,
    Jenny Myers, Amy Myers, Sarah Sampas, and Patricia Myers

    I'm sorry to hear about Rain Man, we were friends as well. When I was active on Whiteblaze years ago, he and I exchanged Christmas cards each year.
