Dear Audrey and Family,
I will miss Ralph tremendously! He was a wonderful man and a true servant of God. I will strive to put the bricks in correctly!! I know he will be watching over my shoulder!! I have a great memory of the time he and I tried to put the old Christmas tree up - many of the branches were not correctly placed, so it kind of looked like a "Charlie Brown" Christmas tree!! After completing this task(!?!) , we both looked at one another and said at the same time, "It's up - we're done"!! Much love and my deepest sympathy to the family. LOVE

I grew up with the Elliott Family at Wesley Memorial United Methodist Church. When both my parents passed away in 2016, I adopted Ralph and Audrey as my Mom and Dad. Our visits together were always enlightening and full of love. Ralph will always be remembered.

I can't begin to express my heart felt sympathy to the Elliott family. I've known a lot of loss in my life, and I know how difficult this is. I never met Ralph, however, knowing his son, Mark, Ralph must have been an awesome man. My prayers are with all of you at this time and always. May God grant you peace. I love you guys, Mark and Maria.
