Homage to the Ice Pirate

As I noted earlier, my best friend from the Navy, and one of the US Navy's most legendary figures... simply known to the world of Navy submariners as the "Ice Pirate" died unexpectedly a few weeks ago.

As an homage to William Randall (Randy) Ray, I've done these four pieces which I will be gifting to his family.
