I am proud to say that I knew Ralph Mosher in Kenora when he tried his best to teach Jean and I the fundamentals of the game of bridge using a method called Culbertson. When Jean and Marg got pregnant about the same time we spent some pleasant evenings learning a new method called Goren. In 1951 we spent evenings during the Christmas and New Years break enjoying their company and before two important births. As our families grew we visited the Mosher family in International Falls in the late 1950's. The Kenora area is a bit poorer with the loss of a great husband, father and grandfather who helped the community in so many ways. RIP, Ralph, you were a great one.
Sincerely, Ken Johnson.
