Played an early 18 at Sagamore Springs with Pa today...overall a good day. Pa found more balls than he lost, which was always more important than the score...

A friend to all who knew him...

To the family, Ralph was a big part of your lives, and I am glad he had a long life. I know he will be missed. My love to you all. J Sullivan
