We are sorry to hear about Ralph's passing. We send our love to Florine and Ron (and his family) and Cathy (and her family). Ralph and Florine opened their hearts and home to Roger and I when we first stepped into pastoral ministry over 30 years ago. We will always thank the Lord for you all.

Uncle Ralph will always be remembered, he looked so much like my dad, his brother, Frog (Charles). Uncle Ralph always made me feel loved whenever I saw him which wasn't too often, a cool loving man whom will be missed but never forgotten.

I am very sorry to hear about your loss. Please accept my deepest condolences. Isaiah 25:8 promises a time when 'death will be swallowed up forever' and God 'will wipe the tears from all faces.' May He provide you with the comfort and strength needed at this time.
