"WOW!!!, this was not expected, came back to the USA for the Crossing of a church brother and found my contact with a good friend was severed, Did not expect this. This man helped me through many problems, he was the voice I counted on after the loss of my own father, He helped fill the void in my life. He was a great friend, Chatted about radios, electronics, cameras, life, cats, everything. I will miss those chats. Good trip Ralph, In Her Light and Love, peace to your journey. "
"Met Ralph in early 2006 at one of the local camera shops. Pretty much immediately became very good friends with him. RIP... Will miss talking with him about photography and traffic signal technology."
"Ralf was always a good Elmer to us hams and non hams as well. You will be missed Ralph. It was always a joy parking kites photography and ham radio as well as many other subjects with you. Rest in peace my friend. Calvin kc7iyp and wife Brenda. "
The comfort of having a friend may be taken away, but not that of having had one.
