My sorrow is extended for the family of Ralph. I was a classmate of Ralph's at A.L. Brown, and we were in band together during Jr. High and High School. May his family find peace and comfort in this very stress-filled time.

Ralph was a good friend and classmate in high school and church. We lived too far apart to play regularly together, but I do remember going to his house as a youngster and hunting with our BB guns in the nearby woods. Simpler times, good childhood memories. Condolences to Karen and family from David and Joyce Holman.
