Dear Cathy: Though I didn't know Ralph for very many years, he was one of a kind! Great sense of humor and the same political views as me! He will be greatly missed for his kindness and his love of students as well as animals alike! God Bless you abundantly

Cathy,
Ralph will be dearly missed by all of his Aggie friends with the TAMU - College of Ag Development Council. During my leadership term on the Council, I will always remember how faithful & committed you and Ralph were about attending our meetings. A person might think that because Ralph was soft spoken, he might not be heard...but let me tell you, when Ralph spoke, the room silenced because people wanted to hear what he had to say. The reason for that is his humble nature and strong committment to supporting the mission of COADC...that of attracting financial resources to enhance educational programs and opportunities in the College of Ag and Life Sciences. In other words, he didn't just talk-the-talk...he engaged himself to provide a difference and opportunity for lots of young Aggies. I consider him a dear friend & mentor. Cathy, may you find comfort & healing from the Lord's Hands and in all the worderful memories. May he rest in peace. Amen.

I met Ralph about 25 years ago at the Rusk County Project Show, then some years later actually got to know him through his beloved dogs. Ralph always had a story to tell about the kids. He loved his animals.

Ralph was a good man, a true friend, an Aggies Aggie, and a devoted husband.

May God continue to give you the strength to carry on. I know that we will all get to see him again someday.

Cathy,
It still seems so unreal that Ralph is not with us any longer. It is true that it is not how many years you live, but how you live the years you are given by our Lord to live. Truly, Ralph lived his years to the fullest. As I told both of you, from the very beginning of our friendship, it was always as friends just talking about the needs of students and families. Know that we remember you as you begin a new life and wish you God's speed in all you do.

Your friends,

Pat and Sharon Taylor.

cathy,
I know you feel such a loss because I know you and ralph had a very special life. I am so thrilled you did your traveling and that you spent so much time together.God knew that he was needed in Heaven more than on Earth. I am so happy that I knew him and I truly respected him and admired him for all he did for the youth and the impact he made on so many lives. I know his Mom was dancing in the streets of gold in Heaven when her little boy arrived. May God bless you and wrap His loving arms around you, Cathy. Please call me if I can do anything for you.
