I am the daughter of Melvin Kloeppel, Ralph's nephew. He has nothing but fond memories of Ralph and has told me many stories about him. Aunt Ruth was a very dear and wonderful person and I just know that in looking at her that my grandmother Flora and Ralph must have been wonderful people too.

Our sincere sympathies to David and his family on the loss of Uncle Ralph. He was such a great man. We looked forward to receiving his yearly Christmas card with his handwritten note. He was our last link to Grandma Knapp.
We will greatly miss him.
Our thoughts and prayers be with you.

We send our condolences to the family of Ralph; I met him when I transferred to the Kissimmee Post Office in 1964, from Orlando. We worked side-by-side for many years, until he retired...I retired in 1988. We lived just a block from Ralph in Kissimmee and remember when a tornado took the roof off of his house many years ago.
I feel privileged to have known Ralph and we thought a lot of him.
Respectfully, Bob & Mary Anne Wicker
