To the Hagmann family: Elsie, Becky, Lisa and Julie, their spouses and children,
Please accept my deepest condolences for the loss of your dear husband, father and grandfather Ralph. It is naturally a very sad time, but also a blessing to know he is free from pain. Ralph lived a long, memorable life is now walking with our Lord in Heaven.
Growing up next door to your family and knowing you all now for 45+ years--you truly are like a second family to my parents, sisters, brother, and I. Since the Hagmann girls were the same ages as my two older sisters and I we naturally spent much of our youth playing together. I especially have many fond memories of Julie and I building elaborate lawn furniture houses together each summer. It seems like just yesterday we were all playing tether ball and hide and seek in our large back yards. Good and happy memories.
It is rare these days to have the same next door neighbor for decades and I am grateful for the blessing of having known you all and for being able to call Ralph a dear family friend.
Know that your family will be in my prayers in the days ahead.
Becky (Wright) Yoho
Offering our deepest condolences during this difficult time.
My Dearest Elsie & Family,
I was so sad to hear of Ralph's passing. And, although we know he is in a better place – free from pain – our hearts are heavy.
My memories of Ralph are such joyful ones! He was kind, caring and always joyful. His laughter filled the room. I will especially miss his huge smile and the joy he brought to my Raphael whether he was teasing him in the backyard or showing him how to weed in the garden. The two of you were a blessing in our lives and we will forever be grateful.
Take comfort and strength from the wonderful family you and he had together. I know their love will get you through this sad time. May God bless you.
All my love,
