A little message for you Marie:
As I sit in Heaven, and watch you every day, I try and let you know with signs, I never went away. I hear you when your laughing and watch you while I sleep, I even place my arms around you and calm you when you weep. I see you wish the days away begging to have me home, so I try to send you signs so you know you're not alone. Don't feel guilty that you have life, life that was denied to me, Heaven is truly beautiful just you wait and see. So live your life, laugh again, enjoy yourself, be free, then I'll know with each breath you take, you'll be taking one for me
Dear Aunt Poki,
Thoughts of you and Uncle Ralph are close to my heart now and always. I am thinking of you during this time and sending my love. I am so thankful I was able to visit you and Ralph last December 2012. I have extremely fond memories of spending time with you both over the years. I will always remember Uncle Ralph's sincere and laid-back nature, his subtle humor, and his warm smile. He was one of the sweetest men I have ever known, and he always seemed genuinely glad to see me, and everyone else too. He will be dearly missed. All my love to you both. Always, Amanda
Marie, I am so sorry for your loss. I deeply cherish our friendship and hope you will call on me at any time and for anything. May you rest and have peace knowing that Ralph is walking with the Lord.
My Deepest Sympathy to you,
Our thoughts and prayers are with you, Marie. There are many happy memories that come to mind when I think of Ralph. They start a little more than 50 years ago. There were trips taken by a few guys to places in Central Texas. Good clean fun by Army friends. Ralph's stories and laughter were a big part of this. Fifty two years ago Ralph arranged a blind date for me. Little did I know that she would become my wife. Thanks, Ralph, for letting God use you to bring my wife to me. Marie, it was so good to see you and Ralph at our 50th Anniversary in June. The visit was short, but there was still time for a Ralph story and a laugh. God's grace and peace to you. Love Paxton (Hutch) and Gloria Hutchison
Ralph I will miss you. I was so fortunate to have known you. I will miss your story telling and subtle humor that always took me by surprise. Most of all I will miss your kind nature. Ralph your love for my sister gave her a fairy tale life and I thank you for that. All my love, Tina.
On behalf of our entire UDC Chapter we send our deepest and most heartfelt sympathy, Marie and family. We are so sorry for your loss and pray God's comfort over the whole family! Becky Venhaus, Shiloh #2538, Plano, TX
While I never had the chance to meet you, knowing your daughter Wendy and your grandson Jason tells me so much about the wonderful man you were. My thoughts and prayers to all of your family.

My big brother Ralph E.Woods was and is one of the greatest people in my Life,really breaks my heart and will be missed greatly. Charlie Woods(Little Brother)
I was lucky to have Ralph as a brother in law. I remember meeting up at mom's house in Windcrest during the Holidays and listening to his stories. I knew I couldn't be anywhere anytime soon because it was going to take a while.
I will miss him,,, rest in peace.
Dear Marie, prayers and thoughts are sent to you and your family. In UDC sister love, Sandra Giarrusso, member of Albert Sidney Johnston #105 - Austin
Dad did indeed have a great smile and a great laugh. He was truly a very nice, easy-going person and a great dad. Losing him has broken my heart in a way that is hard to describe.

You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. May you find comfort in the Lord's presence.

Thank you for being such a wonderful grandpa and great grandpa. I am sad that you never got the chance to meet Ally but you saw lots of pictures and I know you are looking down on her now! Also thank you for all of the great memories growing up with summer trips in the truck with you and grandma ( I always had to have you stop at White Castle for me in St. Louis) and the trip to Sea World with Jason one summer. We had a great time eating breakfast with Shamu. My list of memories could go on and on. We miss you but have comfort in knowing that we will see you again one day!! I love you!!

My thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief. May your memories bring you comfort.
I am going to miss Ralph so much! He was the sweetest father in law and Papa Ralph in the world! Other people sometimes complain about their in-laws, but mine are amazing! Our lives won't be the same with Ralph gone. I love you Ralph, and will never forget the love and kindness you showed me from the very first time I met you!
To my Uncle Ralph - You are a ROCK STAR to me! I will miss our wonderful visits with countless hours of chatting and laughing... Not to mention, I was going to make a HUGE BATCH of no-bake cookies, but I know Dad will keep them at bay... God Bless you for the many wonderful things you have done in our lives! You and Aunt Marie! Love you always! You were such a Blessing! See you some day on the other side! Your Niece, Stephanie
Even though I never had the pleasure of meeting you, you have a special place in my heart. Anyone who served our country during the Vietnam war has my undying gratitude. A soldiers passing is not a soldier fallen but rather a soldier risen, for now your are at peace where there are no wars. Rest In peace dear friend and may God be with all those you left behind.
RAY & Anita Eudy
I know how much Wendy loves you and how hard this is for her. Please watch over her. You had to be an amazing Dad to have two great sons and an amazing daughter who is my best friend and sister at heart. You will be greatly missed. I pray God gives them all the strength to get through this. May the precious memories they have of you bring them comfort.
My heart pours out to David, Wendy, and Brad because I know just how hard it is to lose your dad. I also feel great sorrow for Marie because I watched my mom suffer as she moved forward without dad. It is and will be one of the hardest things you have to do. Uncle Ralph will well be remembered by me. His humor and his laugh will be in my heart and mind forever. The only comfort comes from knowing that God knows best and everything happens under his care. Love and prayers, Brenda (Jenkins) Netherton
I love you so my beautiful Dad. I miss you and your strength and guidance. I always will treasure my memories . My heart is broken in a way that will never repair. I lost part of me when I lost you . Rest eternally my dear Dad.
