    My Uncle Ralph was a great man. I rmember every little thing about him. From me being a young child and him treating me to the newest video game and then later on emailing him for advice and just chatting with him. Anyone who knew him could tell you he had the best personality and he always put a smile on everyone’s face even if it was just with his laugh. Me and my family are all going to miss him deeply.
    Love you and Miss you Uncle Ralph…your nephew…Jonathan
