Ralph Herzmark was a wonderful man: brilliant, but understated, kind, considerate, dependable, and modest about his accomplishments. He and my sister Ruth had such a mutually supportive relationship in their later years. Typical of Ralph, he continued his kind and attentive support throughout Ruthie's last years, even when she was unable to be a reciprocal friend. The world has lost a fine man, and we send our condolences to all his loved one, and all who grieve his loss.
