Ray Price Bids Final Farewell to Fans

“Don’t worry about me. I’ll see you again one day.”

Country Weekly is saddened to hear that Ray Price will return to his Mount Pleasant, Texas, home and begin hospice care.

According to kltv.com, Ray left the East Texas Medical Center, where he was battling pancreatic cancer, and decided, along with his wife, Janie, to forgo any further treatment.

Janie explained Ray’s decision further. “Ray is alert and aware of his surroundings and making decisions. With God's blessing he has not had extreme pain,” she said. “But it’s with great sadness that I announce to you today that my beloved husband has entered the final stages of his cancer that he has battled for 25 months. Anyone who knows Ray is aware that he has strong convictions and great faith in God. It’s his decision to leave the hospital and return home to spend his final days on his beloved ranch surrounded by the comfort of his home, family and friends.”

Ray also had a touching message for his fans: “I love my fans and have devoted my life to reaching out to them. I appreciate their support all these years and I hope I haven’t let them down. I am at peace. I love Jesus. I’m going to be just fine. Don’t worry about me. I’ll see you again one day.”

Cards and notes to the family can be sent to:
