  10. Ralph my friend-

    I remember when your sweet wife Heather asked me to give the toast at your wedding. I only knew you both for a short time but gleefully accepted. I would like to give it again as close as I can remember, if I may, as a tribute to your life.
    Ding…Ding!!…Ding!!! (clinking of fork on glass)
    “Even though I have known you both a short time, one of my forte’s and talents God has gifted me with is the ability to read people very quickly.”

    “Ralph!- I can see that you are an honorable man with a huge heart for the people you love and humankind in general. You are a caretaker for those who are troubled around you and are in need of kindness.”
    “Heather!- You are such a special person who lights up the world with your gift of friendship and gab. People flock to your sense of humor and abilities to touch hearts so quickly.”
    “I can see that you both bring something warm to the world and to those who will be lucky enough to have you in their lives, even if for a short time.” “One thing is for certain, I feel that Ralph will always have you on his mind Heather, and do his best to make you happy.” “I see that Heather will always have your back and be your biggest cheerleader Ralph, and also be there to help keep you inline whether you want her to or not…lol! You both have a beautiful beginning and a beautiful family. I know that God is with you and happy for you both on this special day.

    “To everyone… please raise your glass (champagne)!



  11. Ralph , You impacted so many peoples lives and imprinted so many broken souls with your selflessness ,Showing others away out of the darkness as you stumbled along your path to learn how to walk into the light Out of your own darkness,Watching your world change as the days months and years went bye as you tried to be the person That would be able to live outside of the cell walls and you made it. You found what true love was in the woman that walked by your side and became each other’s soulmates and you became this grand father figure to Harper,Capable of now stepping up to be a part of your other children’s lives as well ,Changing their world in ways that they had never seen you before but I always knew that was inside of you.
    Your laughter lit up a room along with your smile and you were solid to the people that you loved and cared about and humbled yourself so often to help Others that you didn’t even know.
    There Are no words or enough thank you’s for all the times that you were there for my daughter through the good the bad the ugly and in some of her darkest moments you were like the uncle that she never had .You will truly be missed ,So many hearts are aching and have a huge void Presence R.I.P My friend …..catch me outside how about that !

  12. Ralph was someone so special to me, and held such a special place in my heart. There was a reason why we met, we just connected on such a deep level. I hope my son Chris was waiting there in heaven when he arrived, now I have two boys in heaven.
    Love you, Heather and Harper
