A life has a journey and an end. As morbid as it may sound, there is an opportunity. An opportunity upon birth to make a difference in the world and pursue dreams, aspirations, and goals set out over the course a lifetime. This journey has come to the summarization of accomplishments and a story well told. May you rest in peace...

I believe life is about choices and regret. Right now I have regret I didn't spend more time with Ralph during these past few years, but I will always remember the memories and images of him. Like the time I was walking home from school that summer, it must have been 110 degrees; he came by and gave me a ride on that motorcycle. I also remember the time I stuck a 2x4 in our mother's new washing machine through the roller wringer. She went into the house and got a belt and was going to whip me, so I started running and she sent Ralph to chase me down. (I actually thought I could out run him!) I also remember when we went to San Diego to pick him up when his ship come in from overseas. One question I wish I would have asked him is if he could remember how he felt about me being born on his birthday. Ralph and I will always have a connection and that bond.

You will forever be in my thoughts.

May he be dancing with the angels and gleaming with pride as he speaks of his family. I pray he's doing all the things he loved to do while here. May he rest in peace. I love you my far away family! Keeping you in my prayers.
