    Dear Lois, Don't know if you remember me but I worked with Ralph at Midland Products and we visited you way back in the 60's. We are sorry to hear about Ralph's homegoing. Strangely enough we also live in North Carolina since Nov.2008. We are up in Raleigh to be near our daughter in our old age. We want to extend our sincere sympathy to you and your family. Bea & Neil

    It was my pleasure to know Mr. Ralph, though only briefly. His love and concern for his family, as well as his firm hold on his sense of humor, will stay with me for a long time. I wish his family the comfort and peace that time and good memories are sure to bring.
