Tay’s smile and presence lit up the room. He reflected his God well. He had the faith we all should hope to have - the simple, pure faith of a child. There was no pretense or thinking more of himself. He was authentic and self aware. Tay will be missed by all who knew him.

My thoughts and prayers are with the Rafter family at this time. Dr. Rafter was my pediatrician when I was a toddler and my doctor until the day he retired. I remember very little of my childhood, but I still recall the days of taking my doctor's kit to give him his check-ups whenever I had an appointment at his office. I listened to his heartbeat with my pretend stethoscope, gave him shots, and checked his temperature. I still have that doctor's kit today and will continue remember Dr. Rafter, his smile, his kind and loving spirit, and the amount of time he spent caring for the Collins family over the years. Rest in peace, Dr. Rafter. You were loved by so many!
