Uncle Ralph, It was so hard to see you leave this earthly life, but I take comfort in knowing you are no longer in pain and are now reunited with our other beloved family members who left us too soon. I have very fond memories of you, your stories, your jokes, and listening to you play the piano. You will always be in our hearts. I love you and we will all miss you dearly. Your niece, Audrey
