Mrs. Raines and family, My heart and prayers go out to you in the loss of such a great man. Although he was never my principal, I remember him from his visits to "Amherst Campus" while I was there, and his work with the Vision 20/20 team. I will always remember him as a gentle giant whom I respected very much.

Dear Shelby, Please know that I'm thinking about you and your family at this sad time. Mr. Raines - what a wonderful man he was. It was a joy to teach at Stonewall when he was the principal. He was always so supportive of the music programs that we had at Stonewall. He was a kind, gentle leader - and he was a pleasure to work with.

Mr. Raines was my 5th grade teacher at Whire Hall Elementary School. I remember him as a stern but very fair administrator and teacher. He was a wonderful person, they don't come like that anymore. Prayers of comfort and peace for his family.
