So sorry to hear the passing of Ralph. I was a fan of DeHavens from my young days on. Loved the Easter family and my thoughts go out to Gail and Debbie and the rest of the family.
Dear Gail, Debbie, Aimee and all of Uncs' Grandchildren,
I was sick to hear that Uncle Ralph had passed away. He was my Moms' baby brother and always our favorite Uncle. I can remember when he, Aunt Grace, Gail and Debbie would come to Pgh. to visit (before and after Aimee joined the family.) We would all be so excited to see you'all and hated to see you go. Your home was always open both to all of his nieces and nephews and I can even remember bringing a friend and two potential husbands to meet the best Uncle around. Unc was also available to take in a wayward nephew (David) on many occasions. Unfortunately as you get married and move away you lose touch with all the extended family that you loved as a child.
I am sure that after Unc left this earth he picked up Aunt Grace, met up with his brothers and sisters, and my Dad to visit Canada for a long fishing trip.
I'm sorry John and I can't make it to West Chester for the service Sunday but we will be with you in spirit.
Love, Mary Anne and John
I used to spend many afternoons at DeHaven's Drug Store after school with my friends. We sat there and chatted and drank cokes, the real thing of course. Miss those days.
DEAR FAMILY, SO SORRY TO SEE YOUR DAD PASSED AWAY-HE WAS A MENTOR TO MY HUSBAND JOHN WHEN JOHN WORKED AT DEHAVENS- THEY ARE IN HEAVEN FILLING PRESCRIPTIONS- MAY YOU FIND CONSOLATION IN YOR MEMORIES AND THE FACT THAT YOUR DAD IS WITH YOUR MOM-SINCERE SYMPATHHY NANCY PITCHERELLA
So sorry to hear of Mr. Easter's passing. I have wonderful memories of the drug store, Uncle Charlie, Mrs. Hall, Mr. & Mrs. Easter, the soda fountain & Old West Chester. Bobby Spaz. Bar Harbor, Maine.
Ralph was a true "Gentleman" in every sense. I remember when he got up at 3:00 a.m. to deliver a prescription to us for a sick child. He left a fine legacy and will be remembered as one of West Chester's finest. Eleanor Ginter Lewis
Gail, Deborah and Aimee,
What a loss! I'm so very sorry to learn of your Dad's passing. What a sweetheart he was. I remember many times he would open up for Mom because one her "kids" was sick. He's now back with the love of his life and I know his "buddy" was waiting for him with open arms too. My deepest sympathy to all of you.

We are very sorry for your loss. Your Dad was such a nice man, as was your Mom. They were always nice to us. Our sympathies.
I was so very sad to hear of Mr. Easter's passing. I have very fond memories of DeHaven's Drug Store and the Easter family. He allowed a bunch of kids from both Henderson and Bishop Shanahan to "hang out" at the soda fountain every day after school. He gave my my first full time job out of high school working at the same soda fountain, and even babysitting you girls once in a while. He and your mother were wonderful people who made a great impression on anyone who met them. My sincerest sympathy on your loss.
mr. easter was such a wonderful man. when i was first married in 1968 we rented the 3rd floor apt @ 110 w.gay st. he and mrs. easter were so supportive and helpful, like family! my parents were long time customers and friends. i remember my dad calling mr. easter "happy" easter. i am sure aimee and her sisters will miss him every day!
I am so very, very sad to learn of Mr. Easter's passing. I knew him ever since I was a young boy. He was always "Doc Easter" and was THE pharmacist in West Chester.
He was a good, good man.
Rest easy, Doc Easter. You've more than earned it...
Sorry for your loss. If you close your eyes you will feel your Dad. And some day when you are walking uptown you may even hear him calling your name! You will smile and breathe deep. Cause he will always be there.
Hello Deb, In all the year's I knew you at HSI, I never knew this family hx. of your's. You were lucky to have had such a fine father. I am sorry for your loss, I will remember you and your's in my prayer's. Take Care, Jim
My deepest condolences to you Debbie, Amy and Gail- your father was one of the finest people I ever knew (your Mom as well)- he helped me when my son was a baby, barely knowing me at the time, and I never will forget his many kindnesses- the world was a better place with Mr. Easter in it- my prayers and thoughts go out to you all.
You old friend, Barbara Hayes (Mason)
