Dear Mark and Liz,
My thoughts are with you both as I remember the love your father had for his children. He always treated me like family, and I'll never forget his welcoming personality.

Liz: I first met you and Ralph at one of the very first Sports Foundation receptions on the top of a funky building on Broadway downtown. I will never forgot the energy you both brought to a room every time you were present. My prayers are with you during this sad time. Kathy

Dearest Liz,

Thinking of Ralph, as we are all doing, I remember the first time I met you both. Marshall brought me to a Lackland Fiesta parade and celebration and I immediately was “drawn in.” Twenty years later, it is still the same. What a gift we have been given and one that I will treasure always. Please know I am thinking of you, sending you and the Bender Family many warm thoughts and remembering…. The heart remembers. Lovingly,

Liz , Beth and Mark , there are no words to express the emtiness that Ralph leaves but I know that all that knew Ralph will remember all his accoplishments, his great humor ,dynamic personality and Love for ALL. The "Bender Bunch " was a great working group that quickly turned into a working family ( created by Ralph ) I was one of the fortunate employees to have worked with " DAD " as we all called Ralph when I worked with the firm , thanks to Beth :). To all the persons that might remember me Joe Rubalcava , I weep with you in sadness because Ralph has left us I also weep with you in happiness knowing that Ralph is looking from above still caring for ALL his family.

Please receive my deepest condolences and Love in behalf of the family that was so richly Blessed by Ralph Bender ( DAD ) and Family.

Sincerely Joe Rubalcava

Liz, Our thoughts are with you and all of Ralph's family.

Ralph's energy was contagious -- so full of life and so positive in every moment. He was such a remarkable man that it seems that in his 88 years of life, it was simply too short. We will miss him dearly and feel so fortunate to have met both of you. There will always be a part of Ralph in Chicago in this wonderful home he helped us create.

Our sympathies with you.

The Guelich Family
