Its no surprise that Country Music Legend Ray Price is
undergoing the final stages of pancreatic cancer.
And today as I write this with a heavy heart I beg you
to remember him and admire him for his bravery in going
to rest like the hero he is.
Today he left the hospital in Tyler Texas to go to his
home in Mount Pleasant to undergo hospice care
and be called home to Hillbilly Heaven.
The family asks to please respect him at this time.
He left us his final words…
a final message to his fans. “I love my fans and have devoted my life to reaching out to them. I appreciate their support all these years and I hope I haven’t let them down. I am at peace. I love Jesus. I’m going to be just fine. Don’t worry about me. I’ll see you again one day.”
His wife Janie released this to us:
“Ray is alert and aware of his surroundings and making decisions,” said Janie. “With God’s blessing he has not had extreme pain. But it’s with great sadness that I announce to you today that my beloved husband has entered the final stages of his cancer that he has battled for 25 months. Anyone who knows Ray is aware that he has strong convictions and great faith in God. It’s his decision to leave the hospital and return home to spend his final days on his beloved ranch surrounded by the comfort of his home, family and friends.”
I was given the OK to release Ray’s mailing address so you can send him
