Not sure what to say?

Ralph was definitely one of a kind! He always made it so much fun when we visted, not to mention a master at making the best martinis!

Drew and I will always be so greatful for the joy & love he brought to Roma's life.

You will be greatly missed, sweet friend.

I am catapulted back to the 70's at our family reunions seeing my uncle Ralph standing next to my dad and Nancy calling themselves the outlaws. It seemed so silly at the time and now it's a sweet image. With sympathy to my cousins- thanks for sharing your dad with us. Love, Kristy

dear De Shong family what a wonderful man we were introduced to Ralphie because of being close friends with roma we had great fun traveling Italy with them. Such beautiful memories. Our love goes to the entire Deshong family. love Don and Bonnie

I had the pleasure of working with Ralph for many years. He was one of the most creative and fun person to work with in the industry. He sure bailed me out on a lot of projects and always had "just the right thing" for custom work. His wonderful sense of humor will always be remembered. My condolences to the family and my wish for you is to cherish all the memories.

Ralph and Chris

Nancy and I always thought of Ralph as a family member. What a joy he was to visit. We will miss him!
The last time I saw Ralph was last June when Chris Garrett and I drove thru Houston dragging a U-haul trailer. We had a great dinner and breakfast with him - and got a tour of his apartment which he enjoyed.
It is hard to believe he is gone, but he is not forgotten.
