Greg Morton’s Tribute Show in Memory of Ray Vazquez Palm Beach County has suffered a great loss in the passing of Ray Vazquez, a loving father, faithful husband, loyal friend and devoted Firefighter/Paramedic. The Improv is honoring Ray by donating all ticket and Raffle proceeds from this show directly to his family. A cowardly gunman dressed in a suit and tie walked into a Wendy’s restaurant in Palm Beach County (Florida) at lunchtime on Monday, March 3rd, killing a Palm Beach County Fire-Rescue Lieutenant who was on his lunch break. The lunatic then went on shooting four others before turning the gun on himself. The Palm Beach County Fire-Rescue Lieutenant was taking a lunch break from training and met his wife and child at the restaurant. The 42-year-old Firefighter and his family had just left the restaurant when he returned to retrieve a toy his child had left behind. The Lieutenant was shot in the back as he stood at the counter. Michele Vazquez has expressed her appreciation of support from the community and asked that this statement be read summing up her thoughts and feelings about the response of the community, fellow firefighters, police officers, all public safety professionals and even complete strangers. “I don’t know where to begin or how to thank everyone. The support is overwhelming and so appreciated. My children and I thank you so much. People would comment about the fact that I was a cop and Ray a Fire-Medic. We have the two strongest extended families anyone could imagine. We love you all so much. Thank you for being here with me. When Ray started the fire service, I would ask why he called people, “Brother.” ….It didn’t take long for me to figure it out. I know you are feeling my pain and confusion. He loved working with you. I don’t understand why these horrible things happen. But, no horrible thing can take away our memories. My husband was an outstanding father and the most giving husband. He was my best friend, I’m going to miss him so much. Michele Vazquez (Wife of Ray Vazquez) Michele, Our prayers are with you and your family… we love you and God Bless you. All proceeds will go to the Vazquez Family…Please join us Thursday night, won’t you?
