Gloria Eade Dowler Karn Sarnia BranchMy heart goes out to you and your family during this difficult loss. Keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers. Gloria
Sue StewartWe were so saddened to read Saturday morning of Ralph's death. I know these past few years have been difficult yet whenever i bumped into Ralph he would invariably brush it off in his typical manner. He was a true gentleman, kind and generous to all who were lucky enough to know him. On those occasions when we would meet we would talk about families, he spoke with pride and love of you all and it was alway so evident that being a family man was his most important role in life. Our thoughts are with you at this very sad and difficult time. Hugs to you Brenda, Kristen, Ryan and your families. Love, Sue, Steve & Trista
