Ralph, my Father-In-Law, was most proud of his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. This is the last picture of Ralph and Earline with two of their grandchildren, Lisa Judd Kinney & Jennifer Judd Day, and their great grandchild, Scarlett Day.

Ralph was such a sweet man. He had such a great sense of humor. He talked with us kids, not at us like so many adults did. He made us feel like we were special. That meant a lot.

Some of the best times that Dad had was spending time with the grandchildren. He will be missed so much by all the family, especially Mom. After 69 years of marriage and not a day went by that they were apart.
