To Margaret and family,
We are so sorry for your loss. Ralph was a wonderful man and great neighbor! Always had that wonderful smile on his face! We sure have missed having such terrific neighbors! Thoughts and prayers for all during this difficult time.

Mrs Tinker and family: My condolences and prayers on Ralph’s passing. I only new him briefly, from working part-time at night in Assisted Lifestyles at Homewood. I will miss his smile. I wish I had known he was in a German Choir. The one doctor that I work for here in Lancaster Co is German, in fact he still has family in Germany and he loves to sing. He leads our Christmas Caroling at our office party. I could have gotten them singing together. Again my thoughts and prayers to all.
