When I think of Ralph I think of his laugh. The Marshall’s and the Seltzer’s spent so much time together between work and play it seems like we were one big family. Our condolences go out to the family. We will always fondly remember Ralph & Sally too. We hope to see you again in the Great hunting lodge in heaven so we can hear that laugh for eternity.
With much love,
Fred & Jill
