Well, Ralph, you have left only Lila Slavens and me as the remaining "Diaper Route!" Those were fun days when we all were younger and moving around briskly. We've missed your sweet Lois for a long time now. You will now be with her. Scott will be fine. He was a dutiful son to you - and I wish him courage as he says goodbye to you here on earth. You are in heaven now. A much better place for comfort! See you later, Ralph.
Sincerely, Marjorie

Uncle Ralph and Aunt Lois (along with Uncle Duke, Aunt Virgina, Aunt Jeanette and Uncle Russ)took great care of Janet and me in the early 1980's when we moved to Houston. We enjoyed many a fried chicken Sunday lunch. I will always cherish the great memories and the encouraging phone calls that started with "Dan, this is your Uncle Ralph . . ." Scott-We're thinking of you and I'll never forget your guitar riffs. Dan & Janet
