We met Ralph and Cathy on a Travelin' Aggies trip and subsequently took several trips together. While in a fancy hotel on the Canadian Rockies tour, we had given our names and were waiting to be seated. The waiter came out and asked for the Montgomery-Ward party. Ralph was quick to point out that we were waiting for JC (Penney).
From that day on we became the Montgomery-Wards. We are blessed to have such special memories of Ralph.
