Uncle Ralph, When i was little i thought you were larger then life. You were tall, had a big voice, and a big smile. I dont ever remember seeing you mad but i knew somehow i never wanted to make that happen.
You weren't the kind to say "I Love you" often but you sure had wonderful ways of showing it.
In Jan 2005 your sisters husband Mervin J Morey suddenly became very ill. He was admitted to the hospital and passed in 30 days. This was much to our surprise. I'm not sure when but very early on you drove from Texas to Michigan by be with your sister. I cant recall what you did but I know you were there. After many thoracentesis, surgery, chemo and radiation it was apparent we could not do anything to make it better. We were planning to bring him home. He never made it home. At some point you drove back to Texas. I am not sure when you came back but you could not of been home long and you drove back to Michigan to be with my Mom. You stayed for a week after the funeral to make sure she was okay.
There are many ways you showed your Love. This is one I will never forget. Thank you for loving us. You will be missed.

So sorry to hear about Ralph, prayers going out tp you. Ralph always seemed to be happy at the reunions. He once gave me a shoulder massage and told me he was taking a course in it. We always loved seeing all of you there. Hope next year we'll be able to have them again. Will miss Ralph being there though. Love to all. Your cousins Karl and Lois Schwab
