I read recently that on average one person influences 700 000 people. My memories of Uncle Ralph as a child are vivid and warm. I believe I learned the art of hospitality from him, Yes, I believe I did. It's said that others remember most how you made them feel, not exactly what you said. And I remember feeling great, around Uncle Ralph. I'm grateful for that time, even though it was perhaps short and long ago. I never forgot him, and I rememmber him still....

My sincere condolences Wendy and Cliff.
Ralph was such a good friend to me of over the 40 years I knew him. We worked together at three different companies and spent many a night at customer sites diagnosing their computer problems.

I'll miss the great reminiscing we always ended up doing when we got together. RIP Ralph will miss you.
