Dear Chris, Jane and Cathy, Uncle Guy, Luigi and Tony and of course mom. Uncle Ralph was my child-hood idol: fond memories of spending time with my godfather at the farm, his tall-tales and those nut-cracking teeth but what I remember most was his kind heart and deep love for his family and my mom. Underneath that Calabrese "testa-dura" was a gentle man with a caring and gentle soul... rough around the edges- yes - but this is also what made him so special. Please accept my sincerest sympathies during this difficult time- my prayers and thoughts are with you all. Love, Sergio
