I remember Ralph when he lived near statesville NC. We went to church together. He was always so kind and friendly. He wrote a beautiful poem for my husband when he passed away 11 years ago. I still have it. We have stayed friends on Facebook since he moved away. I'll always remember him with for his beautiful heart. Rest in peace Ralph.
