Ralph has a special place in my heart. He was an honest, gentle man. He had a heart of gold. The best neighbor anyone could ever ask for. I dearly love him, and will miss him terribly. To Nikki and Brian, I'm sorry for your loss. I am here if you need me. Rest in the arms of Jesus Ralph. I'll see you on the other side!
