Hi Phyllis and Allison
I just found out about Ralph's passing. I was truly sorry to hear about it. I have wonderful memories of Ross and Ralph in Halifax. I remember your wedding, Allison's birth and baptism. (Remember I snuck into the hospital with Ross so I could see her when she was just 1 day old) My thoughts and prayers are with you. Take care of each other.

Dear Phyllis, Allison and Family. I don't know if you remember me but I worked with Ralph in the TB Lab at what was then called the Path Lab from 1974 until I got married in 1977 and moved to Ontario. Ralph always made me laugh and I loved his stories. I was saddened to hear that he had passed away so young. I will remember him and your family in my prayers. Take care

Dear Allison,

Sorry to hear the sad news of your father's passing. He always had a big smile and a great laugh when we were kids...he enjoyed teasing me about a certain Valentine's Day card. All the best during this difficult time.

Ally and Phyllis,

Sorry to hear this sad news. I've been thinking so much about you both. The photos were beautiful. I have happy memories of playing catch in your backyard with you and your dad, Ally - and it seems like only yesterday your dad made our whole summer by letting us take his jeep to the beach every weekend. We'll be thinking about you lots. Much love to you.

Dear Phyllis and Allison,

My condolences to you both. I have fond memories of playing ball with Mr Legere (somehow Ralph doesn't fit well with my childhood memories) and of spending time with all of you. He'll be missed.

Dear Phyllis and Allison,
Very sorry to hear of Ralph's passing. I did enjoy the pictures and it brought back many good memories of when Jonathan, Andrew and Allison started school at St Agnes.
