    When I first met Ralph I was an early teenager delivering newspapers to him at Shaw Cleaners. he was always so nice to me, who would have thought that 7 years later I would marry his nephew. We are so sad to hear of his passing. Aunt Betty and kids, you are in our thoughts and prayers. He will truly be missed by all.xoxoxo
