Kate. I am so sorry for your loss. Ralph was a good friend, very strong and extremely intelligent. I miss the days we would sit in your kitchen having coffee and great conversations. He will definitely be missed.

Kate, love like yours is a gift from God. Ralph will live forever in your memory, never to be forgotten. He had so much courage as did you.
Life will never be the same because it will be different. Thank God you are surrounded by family who love you. In my thoughts and prayers.

This is such a sad loss. I am honored to have become part of the family when Sal and I gave them a grandchild (Nathan). We remained close over the last 19 years and I considered him a father and law. I purposely didn’t go over to visit lately due to COVID and not wanting to risk getting him sick being I worked in the airport with people that travel. It deeply saddens me I didn’t get to see him before he passed or say goodbye. I always enjoyed his hugs. It was like squeezing a big teddy bear.
Ralph had such a huge heart and unconditional love for everyone he met. He truly enjoyed all his grandchildren. I saw a different kind of smile and laughter from him every time he saw the kids.

I’ll never forget him making me homemade cheesecake every time we came to Port Charlotte. He knew that was my favorite. We also always enjoyed waking up to him cooking pancakes and bacon for breakfast.

My God heal Kates heart soon. For 19 years I’ve know Kate I’ve never seen her cry until the other night and it just shattered my heart. At that moment I just wished I could bring him back for her and fix everything.
May you Rest In Peace Ralph. I know your soul is still very much alive and your on your second journey. We will all meet again one day. Until then, we will all miss you so very much.
You were the sunshine on a rainy day.
We love and miss you so much
Michele & Nathan
