This is for you Dad

For looking into the bluest eyes I’ve ever seen
Your smile, your laugh...the memories
Your strong will, but gentle touch
Your dedication to excellence
The rugged man with the smell of smoke
All your sayings and silly jokes
The classy man with suit & tie
Your wisdom...and your lullabys
For watching you fish way out in the stream
You taught me so much, but mostly to dream
Because of you I will strive for my best,
let go of fear and pass all the tests
With my broken heart, your new life begins

I love you Dad

Your daughter, Lori Lynn

I will always remember Ralph’s smile. Especially when snowmobiling. When the group gathered up and stopped for a while Ralph would pull up with the biggest smile and ice sickles hanging from mustache and beard - quite a site!! Even when Ralph was not smiling but telling a more serious story, his eyes were smiling. Such a neat person, he will be so missed. Prayers for peace and comfort for all friends and family!
