I have just been sent your webpage today, and I must admit it is quite interesting, learning more than before.
I am Ray Lewis's sister, and have just learned of this major F-105 pilots and family, learning about a wonderful man, whom I only knew as my oldest brother who flew jets and was MIA until 1989 (from 1966). A very long time to anguish over his condition. I have now been able to put a closure and this weight coming off my heart.
I was only 16 when Ray went MIA, so learning about this side of his F-105 Family is truly a miracle in my eyes.
Roscoe (Ray's dog) is American, I just can't prove it. He got him on "a street corner" and followed him home, according to Ray, just like the story he smuggled him into Japan in his F-105 (another character) of Ray's. Ray was the most charactis, funny, gentleman I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. Apparently, he was loved and his personality preceded his death, with many family members from the F-105. Here 40+ years later learning about this man I adored, is truly a miracle for me.
Thank you Jack, for your great words and stories.
