Mr. Nappi was a wonderful man, hard working family man we've known our entire lives. Always stopped by my house along with his lovely wife and talk about the old days, he knew my parents and all my uncles and aunts. Mr. Nappi as we always address him and respected him is one of the last people from the greatest generation, resting in peace eternally safe in Heaven.

Gloria and all, my heart is with all of you. Ralph was so special and I'll never forget how he referred to me (and all the other cousins) not by our names but by "cousin". It always made everything feel so much more personal and close. We were family. I'll never forget all the fun I had at your house in my teen years. God bless all of you, I hope the good memories help you through this tough time. There's quite a reunion party going on in Heaven right now! With love, Lisa Nightingale.

I don't have enough words to say how much Uncle Ralph meant to me and I know that is tiny compared to how much he means to each of you. He was always so full of life and love! I wish I could be there with you all, but I will be in my heart. I love you all!
