Ginger, we both have husbands who passed on November 11th just different years but 43 years together as a married couple for both of us Is a challenge to navigate losing our sounding board. But God cares, listens, understands loss and reassures us we will see our dear loved one again.... in a much better place and time. Be strong in your Lord and He will direct you’re paths and comfort your hurting heart and get you through it. I promise because He promises! Romans 8:28! Love you, Judy

So grateful to Ralph Cooper! He hired me & was my first boss at Stare Farm Insurance. He believed in me and I worked hard at not letting him down. He was kindhearted, fair and had such a sense of humor. His beautiful wife, Ginger would light up his face when she'd stop by the office. His daughter & son were the pride & joy of his life. Although my 31 years with the company would take me to Houston, Tx I will never forget this wonderful man. God bless the Cooper family during this difficult time...

I have known Ralph for 43 plus years when he swooped my cousin Ginger off her feet and promised to love and honor her till forever and he did. He loved with words, tenderness, extreme gut wrenching humor and in deed. Ralph loved to make people smile even when he was having a rough day. I will miss his daily posts on Facebook that would bring a smile to my face and a loud giggle sometimes too. He is with so many family that went on before him. I can just hear him now, “did you hear the one about.........”
Praying for you Ginger, Leslie and Nick. ❤️

Ralph was a super guy. He was a great husband, father, and grandfather. I remember how he would come to school to help Ginger. He was there to help with school functions . He always was kind to me. He will be missed. I am sorry I will not be able to attend service, but I want all the family to know I am praying for them. Hugs to all.
Love,
Nancy
