Our dearest Ruby and Family, how very sad Jim and I are that we are not there and so very far away in Colorado. Jim said, "he will miss our golfing expeditions" and as for me, I will just miss "my Ralphy". We have so very many wonderful memories to carry us through "till our race is over". Ralph was one of the finest men we have ever known and the people he touched will be better for it. Our love and prayers are said with you and your family at the forefront,...

Just read the obituary and it was well written. I had forgotten he was a fellow PKA brother; however, I will always remember him as Uncle Ralph the military jet pilot. Best wishes to the entire family.

Brother Chadwick counseled me about fifteen years ago and was so helpful in his loving guidance and understanding. I refer to his counsel frequently. My deepest sympathy to Sister Ruth Chadwick and the family.
