    I leave this message with a heavy heart for a beloved uncle. I have wonderful memories of him as I was growing up that I will cherish always. Ted and Bonnie, hold on to the memories and the love of your dad. I hope you can find comfort in the fact that you carry a piece of him in your heart , you’ll soon realize every breath you take is the breath he gave you. Aunt Marilyn, Uncle Clifford and Aunt Pat even though I am far away, I won’t be in the next few days when our hearts bond together as one… as we all will remember Uncle Ralph.

    Love always, Donna

    Ralph worked for Lakewood Presbyterian Church where I serve as organist. I always appreciated his sense of humor and his strong work ethic. He was helpful to everyone and did his work with competence and good nature.

    Ted, Bonnie, Aunt Marilyn and Uncle Cliff,

    Mike and I were saddened to hear about the passing of your father and brother. I have many fond childhood memories of Uncle Ralph and will always remember him that way. Mike worked with him at Ceilcote many years ago and thought he was a great guy. I know nothing that I can say will lessen the loss you are feeling. Just want to let you know that you will be in our thoughts and prayers.

    Ralph and I worked at Lakewood Presbyterian Church at the same time and I remember him as a good worker and very helpful. The one thing I always appreciated was his sense of humor and that whenever it snowed, he would go out and clean off our cars for us. That’ s the kind of thoughtful person he was. My sympathies to his family.
