Dear Rosie, Karen and I are saddened that this special man that you married 57 years ago is now gone to the ages. We were so looking forward to our cruise to Australia and New Zealand in October and then sharing those travel memories with you and Ralph. We fondly remember you both attending our marriage in Colorado Springs in 1966 as good friends at Colorado State College and as AFROTC cadets. We enjoyed our few reunions over the years and will cherish the good times we had. We have lost a truly warm and congenial soul and send our heartfelt condolences to you and your family in your loss.

Rosie,
Mere words cannot express what I truly feel for you, in my heart, today. So I will share that in IN SUMMATION Ralph loved: Jesus, You, Family, Friends, Life, and Travel --- in this order. I have so many Sweet Memories, but the one that sticks out the most is him telling me: "Rita read Psalms 91 every morning OUT LOUD". I got it, I started, and have been doing this ever since. His smile and personality was ALWAYS Contagious. I will always cherish Our times at HMS, and outside of HMS. I love you and Ralph to the Moon & Back. Always have - Always will!
Major Ralph Henry Boswell you are "A MAN AMONG MEN", and a Dear Friend till the end.
With Love & Respect, Rita Norman

So many memories come to mind: parties, holidays, dinners, events, but with all memories your amazing smile, pleasant accent, and laugh stood out. Even when we texted a few times the last week you were with us your appreciation for thoughts and prayers came back with wonderful emoji that, I think, perfectly, reflected your love, smile and your soul. Thank you for your love to me and to many. You lived an excellent life and were an excellent example of your faith. I will miss you, Ralph, God speed. Respectfully, David

Saddened and broken hearted to learn of this gentle mans passing. Ralph was a special man and friend from Fountain High School. I met him when I was 16 and remember him as a kind thoughtful man from our class. He and Rosie would send me such thoughtful ecards. My deepest heartfelt condolences to his entire family.
