I am sorry for your loss, please accept my sincere condolences. I hope the family will find some comfort and strength in Jesus promise of the earthly resurrection(Acts 24:15)and the renewed Paradise earth, where death will be no more and no family will mourn the death of a loved one.-Revelation 21:3,4;John 5:28,29;Luke 23:43. may GOD(Psalms 83:18)grant you peace and comfort now, during this grievous time.-Matthew 5:4

I have lots of great memories of my old friend Ralph, dating back to the mid 1960's when we worked together at the original Orlando MacDonald's on West Colonial Drive. He was always full of life and energy. I'll always remember his great smile and sense of humor. He will be missed by all of those who knew him. I pray that his entire family will have peace that passes understanding, as they go through this difficult time. Danny Dunn
