May our God give comfort and strength to Irene and the family. A man can have no better neighbors than Ralph and Irene.
I was so sad to hear about Ralph’s passing. I always enjoyed seeing y’all while I was employed by Dr. Dearstyne. Ralph was always so friendly, and always had a smile on his face. It was so obvious that he was in love with his sweet wife! Love and prayers are with you Irene.
