Ps 116:15

My precious dad, you will be missed and were loved beyond what words can express. So thankful for God’s peace that has enveloped me in such deep grief. Also, so thankful for your example in my life ... “You were faithful and I saw Jesus in you!”❤️

So privileged to have had such an amazing father. He led by example, loved with all his heart, had a deep faith in God, and gave his all to everything he did. He never feared dying because he knew where he was going.
Daddy, my memories of you will never fade, I am thankful for so many, and that God chose you to be my Dad. Your light will always shine. It gives me great peace to know you are free.
In the Sweet Bye and Bye Daddy❤

I guess I am one of a few who have known Ralph over the past 65 years. I went to School with Virginia, Edmund and Ralph all those years. As we sat in alphabetical order we were next to each other all those years. I expect his parents welcomed him home. C. Gray
