John, Mary Lou, and families. Your father will be missed by many, each with fond memories. Uncle Ralph was a kind, energetic, funny, happy person who always seemed truly interested in our lives. We are all better people having known him (and your mom). The holidays we all spent together, the great times sledding down the hill from your house, your dad teaching me to sharpen knifes and his talks offering advise. He was a nice man to call Uncle. Sorry I can't be up there with the family.
