I grew up with Erin, Allen’s daughter and went to school with her all the way from elementary to college. Erin’s family I considered as my extended family growing up. I have so many wonderful memories with her family and her dad! I know how much Erin loved her dad and I’m so sorry for her and the whole families loss. May he Rest In Peace.

I knew Ralph growing up in Ontario. My family were good friends with his and we soon became family. Although they moved away his parents always kept us updated on his accomplishments.
It is so sad of his passing for he still could of had many more years ahead. May the family be comforted by the many good memories, laughter, travels, and being together.

RIP Ralph and that you be reunited with your beautiful mother, Gloria.
Blessings from,
Mary Jean Mendoza
