Your in our thoughts and prayers D. Ralph was a man full of integrity and passion. He loved his fishing! I don't think there ever was a time I talked to him that it didn't end up with some sort of fish story. He was a good man and we will miss him. You know our heart goes out to you. It is so good to hear you talk of the peace you have in your heart. May God bless you in this time of sorrow.
