Uncle Ralph has been a legend in our family for years. I remember growing up and playing with Duana and Shari in the in back yard pool. Uncle Ralph and Aunt Hilda always made everyone feel comfortable and loved, just as we all pray they know we feel the same about them.
I remember my 16th birthday and attending a family reunion in Alabama. There was a game called "I'm going camping do you want to go and what are you bringing?" I didn't catch on very fast to how the game was played and I was one of the last one's standing still trying to go on the camping trip Uncle Ralph stepped up behind me and say bring a dog. So, my next answer was a dog I finally got to go, not still understanding Uncle Ralph explained to me the item you bring had to start with you first name. I have loved this game since then and it has become a family tradition at our reunions now.
Uncle Ralph will be missed dearly, but I know that he is up above now rejoicing with his family and he will guide us with comfort though our grief. He will always be remembered for his smile and laughter, his love to his wife, children, grandchildren, and family. He was an outstanding person which, will never be forgotten, within our hearts, spirit, and love.
