If Ralph had been asked, he would have said,"I'm the luckiest man in the world." Ralph spent over 50 years with the love of his life. He was a successful, respected and compassionate Funeral Director for 25 years. He watched his two children grow into well-rounded and successful adults with the morals and character they learned from their parents. He helped Angela build a new business from scratch into the success it is today. He watched his children marry and start their own families. He got to enjoy the arrival of the five "smartest, most beautiful, most handsome,etc., etc.,etc.,
grandchildren" and watch them grow. They knew he would always support them in anything. Ralph had the respect and friendship of so many, many people in Grand Prairie. He was an Arlington boy but he dearly loved his adopted city. He also had a smaller group of friends to travel with, play golf with, eat out with, and just relax with. They loved him not just as a friend, but as a brother. Ralph touched so many lives and left a void in so many hearts. Wendel and I wish Ralph had been given many more years on this earth but Ralph would still say, "I'm the luckiest man in the world."
