Not sure what to say?

Today I received an email from Legacy suggesting that I share a memory of Butch. Butch was more than a cousin to me, he was like a brother. He was also my childhood best friend. On Drake St. in Chicago, we played together nearly every day. This was during our grade school years. As we got older, though, with each passing year, we unfortunately drifted further apart. Yet, Im my heart, he was, and still is, as near and close to me as those early years.

Sending heartfelt hugs...

We are so sorry to hear about Ralph's passing. He did our taxes for years, and always heard about his family and life every year. He was a wonderful man and will be missed. With deepest sympathy, Sheila and Fred Lane

Just learned today about the passing of Ralph.Our hearts break for his wife and sons, who we heard so much about over the last 10 years while having our taxes done. Ralph was such a nice guy, he will me missed many. With our deepest sympathies, Kenny and Kathleen Butzen

Thoughts prayers and support to Ralph's wife and sons. we knew Ralph from getting our taxes done with him almost 33 years. We always had a great time with him going over our taxes and also a lot of chuckles. We heard each year about his life and he heard about ours. We heard countless praises about his wife Diane and kids. So now we are quite sure he is in heaven watching all of us. With Sympathy, Terry Judy and Allyson Gray

Sending loving thoughts and prayers to my cousin Butch's family. Also sending a big hug to my Aunt Edna and cousin Linda. I was shocked and saddened to hear of Butch's passing. He is gone too soon. May you find comfort in the loving memories you have of him. God bless.
