Dear Karen, Alisa and Jeff, I am just now learning of Ralph's death.. Please know your families will continue to be in our thoughts and prayers in the upcoming days. I always cherished your Mom's friendship when she lived across the street from us growing up-- Wilma was like a "Big Sister" to me back then--and even though I didn't know Ralph as well I knew him as Wilma's husband and grew to love him because of that-- they were both wonderful people. Please know I will be praying for strength for all of you..
Shirley Sumner Fussell called tonight to tell us about your father's passing. I was so sorry to hear that you've lost him. He and my father, Cliff, were first cousins, and Daddy never had a better time than when he was with his cousins, Ralph and Charles. They had some great times growing up on the OcmuIgee. I will always remember your daddy's infectious laugh and quick wit, and I was proud to be related to him. I am so sorry for your loss.
With deepest sympathy,
(Mary Gail Fussell Knight and Robert Clifton Fussell are my siblings.)
