Ray Alexander told me via email today that Dinah had passed away. Sad news indeed. He also described his own health issue in somewhat optimistic terms, so we hope to see him at SSCC in September. He can't post himself, maybe because membership has to be current, but I'm sure he would love to hear from any and all of you via this Message Board or via other means.

Ray, so sorry to hear about Dinah. I still remember when Bob and I first showed up, and all the time she spent talking to and telling stories at the Postal Palace. Was good seeing her again and she will be missed. Sent with will wishes and prayers.
Ray, My thoughts are with you and hope your health turns to the good.
Ray, I'm so sorry about Dinah's passing. I have many fond memories of her over the years at the races in Nevada and Texas. I'm pulling for you also on your health issues and know you have many, many friends in the racing community that are doing the same. My thoughts and prayers are with you my friend.
Thanks for the well wishes.
I am focused on my treatment, I am having one terrible side effect. I am half way through and then a determination will be made as to an operation. My radiation doctor say there is a 35% chance the growth will be gone. I certainly hope.
Our Prayers are with you Ray and hope all goes the best possible.
Ray, I am so sorry to hear about Dinah. We used to have some great laughs at finish line early in morning.
I also send good thought and prayers to you. You can beat it. Stay positive.
Ray, Dinah and I had great times driving down to the finish pits together. May you find comfort in your memories. I will always remember her as a happy and very compassionate lady. Remember your SSCC family is here for you, in good times and the bad. Praying for a full recovery for you.
Had a dream two nights ago; we were following a Corvette which stopped in the road ahead of us. The driver got out and it was Ray....Hugs all around...
Ray, I am so sorry to hear about Dinah's passing. I still remember the very first thing she said to me: "I always liked the smell of a good cigar". I will miss her and I hope you overcome your own health issues and go down 318 with the Old Farts just one more time.
Thanks for the well wishes. My entry has been sent in for September.
BTW the Old Farts kicked me out because of the Barbecue. I am still friends with the ones that were friendly. I am not at all sad about being booted because the Vegas Vettes picked mu up and they are a great group. Plus without the help of the Vegas Vettes Silver State would have difficulty getting off the dime.
Glad to hear we will see you in September! Our entries went in yesterday. Robin and I were at the banquet when that idiot from Old Farts did that. He did not speak for the entire contingent from Tucson or many from SoCal. Robin and I have never missed the barbecue but we have missed seeing you there! I started building a new scooter...I'll show you pics at the BBQ in September.
Hello Ray, Wally and I are very saddened by the news of your loss. We are praying your Memories bring you much comfort.
We are happy to hear your health is getting better. We are not going to be able to attend in Sept. We missed you in May at the two way which was fun and we had a great race. Hope to see you next May.
Sending much love your way
