Raymond Arthur Gillen

May 12, 1959-December 3rd 1993


Another person that stole a piece of my heart was Ray Gillen. The first time I met Ray was two days after my 18th birthday. I had gone to see this new band called Badlands that dreamy Jake E. Lee was in. I didn't even know who Ray was but after I met him all I could think was Jake E. who? Ray had so much charisma on and off the stage. A voice that sounded like angels singing.. He was so underrated. The whole band was.  All the guys were nice but Ray and I had an instant connection. I saw the band 5 or 6 times. I believe it was 5. Anyway we talked as much as we could when we saw each other. He told me so many personal things about himself. And he always made me feel loved & special. The last time I saw Ray was in 1991. Two years later he was gone.. A piece of my heart gone with him..

(My autograph from Ray 1991)

"Dead Leaves"

A part of me died with you. Gone like the dead leaves and the pirates of long ago. You were a thief in the night, you came and stole my heart- the most precious thing I had to offer.. my personal pirate.. I let you walk away with all I had to give. And I didn't protest. Not one bit. Now you are gone and so is a part of me. The part of me that you owned. The part of me that was a part of you. You took a piece of my heart with you and left your love, the love that you gave in it's place. It wasn't too bad of a deal but it did leave me feeling a little bit empty. No I'm trying to fill the void that I have inside. I loved you so much like the teddy bear that I had as a child. I clung to you for dear life-my security blanket, my comfort. Never knowing that everyday I spent with you was one less day that we would share. Hearing you say "I Love You" and not knowing that it would be the last time I would hear it from you.. EVER..
