The bittersweet ending to a beautiful life
W ray5
Faye Whitaker, left, and Hospice Advantage social worker Kim Williams cared for Ray at home during his last days.
For all intents and purposes, Ray Whitaker’s life ended the night of May 21. Whitaker and his wife, Faye, of Stilson, had been to the viewing of his father at a local funeral home and were on their way home, Faye in her truck and Ray on his motorcycle behind her. They were traveling on Georgia Highway 119 near Georgia Highway 24, when Faye, rounding a curve, looked back and noticed that her husband’s headlight was no longer shining behind her.
