Barbara, Mike and family,
We are so very sorry for your loss. I had the pleasure of working with Ralph at Imperial/Quanex for many years. He part ran for us, always seem to know what we needed before we did. Ralph took very good care of all in the Maintenance Dept. Loved to talk about his family. I also knew Ralph through my Father, Robert. Before Dads passing Kelly and I would always run into Ralph and Barb at Meijer, he would always ask "how is pop doing"
I learned some valuable insight from Ralph.
Again, so very sorry for your loss.
Randy, Kelly Redmond

Michael Showalter sent me the sad news about Ralph. I have good memories of living in Ft. City & Williamsburg. Ralph was always so friendly and I am sure he will be missed. Just wanted to send my sympathy  and pray you can find peace in the days ahead.

     I am so very sorry for your loss, I met you and Ralph for the first time last summer while out for a walk in the neighborhood with my daughter, and you were both so kind and took time out of your day just to stop and talk with us, it truly meant a lot to me that you did that. I wish I didn't know the journey you and your family are about to embark on, but unfortunately I do all too well. You all have my deepest condolences and prayers during this most difficult time.
