Susan, Marshall, and Shawn,
Our deepest sympathy to you. Know we feel your loss – Ralph was a great man, friend and to me a terrific boss. Having worked for Ralph I know first-hand the love he had for Kay, his children, his mother, and his brother/sister-in-law and their family. Ralph put his family first as he demonstrated throughout his life. Ralph enjoyed the simple things in life – hunting, fishing and spending his life doing for his family. He also made terrific herring – Kay the best peanut butter fudge – yummy! Jerry and I feel your loss and know of our prayers for your family.
