Annette Dixon remembers summers and weekends at her grandfather's tobacco farm in Lothian, learning how to pick tobacco while other kids splashed at the pool. Her mother, Dolores, said her children would complain, "It's bad enough that Poppa gets us up at the crack of dawn, but then if we finished early, the next thing you know, he's saying, 'Let's go see what Uncle Jim or Uncle Robert's doing, and help them out for a while.' " Now 26, Annette knows her experience was special, a product of generations of a close-knit family that sought to keep the farming tradition alive - they still butcher their own meat - even as the younger generation sought jobs away from the farm.

"That's behind us," cousin Larry Barganier said he told Ray not long ago as they talked about the family's good fortune. "We beat the statistics. " But the gray coffin cradling his cousin on Wednesday was a cruel reminder that the "streets are cold," Barganier told mourners at Ray's funeral.

The 20-year-old Ellicott City native, whose strongman pose and indomitable spirit in the face of brain cancer spawned a viral homage , was taken off life support Friday night, family members said.
