Ralph could always be seen at church with smiles and laughs. He had a special gift of giving of himself for the sake of others and he did that freely. May you find comfort in knowing that where his spirit now resides is filled with unending hymns of praise, vibrant colors and no more wheelchair. I am sure when he reached the gates he was greeted with “Your mission has been accomplished and your faith has served you well. Well done my servant.”
GOD's-speed to my friend since 1943.
No one could have asked for a better Buddy to have had growing up. Thanks for all the laughs and good times!
Dana, I am very sorry for you and for your families loss. Love and prayers.
