“Relationships are a never-ending work in progress.”
Francis Ray, If You Were My Man

“Payton “Sin” Sinclair was an unapologetic people-watcher. As a sports consultant, working with some of the biggest and most recognizable athletes in sports and business, he had to be able to read the smallest nuances of others. That ability was just one of the unique attributes that set him apart from the competition and made him the go-to person when corporations wanted to align themselves with the top professional athletes in the country.”
Francis Ray, A Dangerous Kiss

“do we not love each other enough, or do we love ourselves too much!”
Francis Ray, I Know Who Holds Tomorrow
