Not sure what to say?

Front of the garden.

Ralph guided me into the world of Special Education teaching. I took class after class from Ralph usually after having dealt with kids all day long: yet he was always entertained us, gave us fresh material, didnt repeat, and understood that we students were exhausted at those times. What a saint! Then he would show up in my classroom to evaluate and would give me really good insight into some of the very troubled children we were dealing with. Thank you Ralph for the excellent grounding you...

We are thinking of you during this time of grief. May the love of family and friends give you support and solace.

Mary Lou and family,
I am so sorry for your loss. Thinking of you during this difficult time.

Mary Lou,

Our thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family. He was a very special man and I'm sorry we didn't get to spend more time with him.


Holly Schoettler and the Old Main Village family

Mr. Kudela, you inspired me to be myself & helped me truly discover who I am. Thank you so much for being such a great man. You allowed me to vocalize myself to you and just listen to me when nobody else would. I'll always admire you & work towards becoming that man that you are.

Mary Lou and Family - on behalf of my Mom and family, I'm sending our sincere condolences to you all on Ralph's passing to Eternal Life. May he Rest In Peace, and May Songs of the Angels lead him to his reward in Heaven.

I'm so sorry for your loss. He sounds like a very special man! My condolences to you and your family.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

My deepest sympathy to you, Mary Lou, and your family.
