To the friends of my father Ralph, on behalf of the family... thank you very much for many years of friendship. He loved to keep in contact with his old buddies from Marine Barracks, 8th&I, Silent Drill Platoon. To the day he died he prided himself in the fact that he was able to serve with the best of the best in the United States Marine Corps. To other family members and friends, he cherished the conversations and lifelong friendships that he had with you. He had the best neighbors anyone could ever ask for and your support after the passing of my mother eased his pain as much as could be expected. Until Valhalla may you meet again.

Ralph's son, Thomas Reimers
