To whom ever the smart ... was who decided to display my sons picture at Jennifers funeral you will have to pay for this in the long run. My son was nothing to this woman. You had no right to use his name as her son or display his picture. After everything this woman has put my family thru you had a lot of nerve in your actions. One day we will come face to face and God help you when that happens.

No, It's more than just a picture. I lost my son while he was visiting his father to a 4-wheeler accident October will be 13 years. We was separated at the time. There is not a day goes by that my heart don't ache for my son, he was only eleven years old . This woman never knew my son. He was killed before his father married her. He was never around her. She caused my kids a world of hurt and her family had no right to use my sons picture for sympathy.

Is your husband still with this woman? If so, maybe he wanted the picture on display. Sorry to hear of your loss. Others can tell you on this site that I take the death of a child very seriously. They are precious, and must be protected.

No he is dead of a heart attack in april. They did'nt stay married long. It was a mistake that cost him alot. Thank you for the concern for my son. He was a very precious child and i tried my best to protect him from any hurt. Thats why i say this woman did not know my son. He never knew anything about her.

I don't mean to speak ill of the dead. For once Jennifer is not to blame here. This was her familys doing not hers.

Mrs. Phyllis I mean no disrespect to you, but I don't think they were referring to your son. Her current husband has a son with the same name as your son except for Ray instead of Bohannon. Also I was at the funeral and looked at the pictures. I do not recall seeing a picture of your son there. The pictures were of Jennifer and different members of her family. Didn't you say he didn't even know her, why would they have a picture of him up there? Sorry about your little boy, it is so sad when lives are lost so young.

If i have made a mistake i will be the first to apologize but a couple of my good friends went to the funeral home and came back and told me about it. I know they did not mistake Shawns picture. Helen had the same picture in her shop for many years after his death. Helen was very close to Shawn and would not have said anything if it had not been true.

can't say anything about the picture. i saw the pictures and i have to say i only knew a few of the folks. i had no clue who most of them were. however i can say no one at anytime listed your son as jennifer's son. not in the obituary,the memorial service, nor on the radio. the 2 step-sons mentioned were leroy's boys. i am sorry about your son. i pray i never have to experience that. i pray the Lord will help you each day.

Here is that portion of the obit from Sav Morning News. It references her step sons: Newly and Shawn RAY not Bohannon. Mrs. Phyllis, I knew your son, am actually kin to him on his dad's side, and I did not see his picture. I can understand you being upset, but I don't recall his picture. I saw pictures of her family and some of Leroy's family.

"Jennifer Lynn Bohannon Ray - HAZLEHURST - Jennifer Lynn Bohannon Ray, 48, died September 7, 2009. Survivors: husband, Leroy Ray; sons, Robert Newman Ray and Shawn Ray; daughter, Meagan James, and other relatives."

Now, it's MY TURN! I have sat back and tried to let this little bit of immoral stupidity simmer down a bit before i got my word in. I actually have the pictures in my possession that we used in MY MOTHERS FUNERAL. Still in the frames just like they were @ Miles. I even picked out the pictures that were put in them. and nowhere was there a picture of Shawn nor mention of him in her service. AND Yes, I know Helen as well, she WAS my hairdresser since i was a child. What both yourself and Helen have done it TOTALLY disrespected not only my dead mother but myself as well by even being immoral enough to post that on the net for everyone to read when u didnt have all the facts. Her passing has caused me enough heart ache and pain to have to deal with your sheer disrespectfulness. AGAIN, if you would like too see the pictures I used in my mothers service they are right here beside her urn whenever you want to see them. Whatever beef you had with her had nothing to do with myself nor any of the rest of our family, but thanks for absolutley making our grieveing that much more unbearable.

Well, put yourself in my shoes and then tell me how "Rediculous" it is. Having not only your dead mother but her entire family including yourself just Tee Totally disrespected and run in the ground for absolutley NO reason. If she didn't have the facts, she should have kept her mouth shut. OR better yet, just asked ME. Not get on here blabbing about some totally un true he said-she said bull crap. As a matter of fact, I have the guest book from my mothers funeral service right here. I will gladly give you all the names on it so you can call them. And as I said before, PHYLLIS, you are more than welcome to come look at the pictures yourself. AND THEN I hope you feel like the complete baffoon you are. I have tried to avoid talking about this with Helen, however I will be making a little visit to Tangles in the morning. So don't feel alone in this matter....she's gonna hear what I have to say too.

I can understand you being upset, I can understand Phyllis being upset if this was true,,She should have called you instead of putting it on here.. My beef would be with the messager, Helen, always sticking her nose where in doesn't belong. Just my thoughts

apparently, phyliss had a beef with jennifer,,, needless to say was no reason for her to get on here and disrepect anyone without all the facts.. and from what i hear, phyliss went and got flowers from when Lannie died that was not for her to take anyway...especially the one that had "swampman" on it.. those flowers were meant to go to Louise,, Lannie's fiance.. and Megan... you cherish your memories of your mother,, she was your mother,, and you have all the right in the world to defend her... sure she may not have been perfect, but none of us are and let those without sin cast the first stone,,, and from my early childhood, i will never forget the saying,,, PEOPLE WHO LIVE IN GLASS HOUSES,, SHOULD NOT THROW ROCKS...!!
