    My most sincere condolences to all of you on the loss of your Father, Grandfather, Brother, and Friend. I have had the utmost respect for Ralph from the time I was a little girl. Growing up with you guys and having your Dad around was often like having a second Dad. Although opportunities to visit in more recent years have been fewer and farther between, each one was a gift! I will certainly miss him and may you find some consolation in knowing that he was treasured and loved by many. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you!

    Love and Hugs,
    Louise & Alan Parsons
