Ralph and Sandra were good friends in our neighborhood circle of the Village Common of Rhode Island. Both contributed genuine concern for all around them. We will miss Ralph's bright smile, and we grieve his passing with Sandra and the entire family.

I worked quite closely with Ralph during my tenure in Boston. He was always a very responsive, creative and considerate person. During that time the focus of marketing/design companies was moving toward digital, and while Ralph had significant expertise and talent developed over many years in the non-digital approach he willingly made the leap and successfully conquered the high learning curve. I always admired that quality in him, and his ability to maintain a calm center during high-pressure projects. I was grateful to have known him for 13 years, and appreciate his gentle encouragement.
