Not sure what to say?

Helen and I were saddened to hear about Ralph's death. He was a good man and was a great Peace Corps volunteer in Ada, Ghana-a dedicated teacher. We still remember our nights at Hushies with you, Ralph and the other volunteers. Take care,
Bob and Helen Smithwick

I had no idea- I just found out. I am so sorry Mary, Hannah, Ellen and Rachel- words can't express. Ralph was a great guy. He will definitely be missed.

I can only say god is I cant even begin to tell you how bad I feel about the passing of Ralph. What a great guy. God can only get you through this prayers are with you all

Dear Mary and girls, Amelia and family, and Marty and family,
We were all so saddened to learn of Ralph's unexpected passing today from a communication from Kathy. You are all in our thoughts and prayers. We have not seen each other in many years due to the distance between us, but I remember one time when Ralph took time out of his busy schedule during a seminar in Florida to stop down and visit with my parents (my Dad was very ill at the time). They so appreciated and enjoyed his...

I also worked with Ralph at NSP/Xcel Energy. He was definitely fun to work with, easy going and got the job done.

After reading these messages I am so sorry I never met Ralph, he sounds like a truely fun & good person. Needless to say I am very sorry he was taken from you and your family so soon. I pray that God will help you all heal the big hole in your hearts. Virtual hugs to you.

My thoughts and prayers to the Rye family. I knew and worked with Ralph for over 20 years! He will be missed dearly!
