It was so good to see Brother Ralph at the vow ceremony in Dayton last week.
May he be at peace and be blessed for all the good he did!

Bro. Ralph was always full of ideas and hopes for our Society of Mary and its mission. He was a deeply sensitive man, grateful for any kindnesses shown him: for example, I had written him some years ago for his Jubilee of First Vows, and he was the first to respond to me when I began celebrating mine this year. We count him among our intercessors and our Marianist Family in eternity.
