    My heartfelt condolences to the children of Ralph and Fairy, on the passing of your dear Dad and Grandpa, Ralph. A fine man. A life well lived.
    When the Ralph and Fairy Narum children were small, I babysat you together with your cousins, the Adams, at your home for one day and at the Audrey and Jack Adams farms on another day while your parents went to a farm auction. A memorable experience with a very active and lively group. Be well, be wise and proud of yourselves! Ortrud Dyck – now Trudy Schmidt, Airdrie, AB.

    We were so sorry to hear about Ralph’s death. We both have many fond memories of Ralph since we first met him in the early 1980’s. Our thoughts and prayers are with all the family. We are away this weekend so will not be able to attend the “celebration” of his life, but will be thinking about all of you.

    Dear Family, Ralph was an amazing man who touched the lives of many, I am deeply saddened by his passing and will cherish the memories I have of him. My most heartfelt sympathy is with each and every one of you. He left such a positive impression with my family that will be with us always. My entire family has great respect for Ralph, especially for the influence and values we feel he placed within Brandon and is such a big part of who he is today. Ralph touched our hearts greatly and will be forever missed.
