Deepest sympathy

David and I are so sorry for your loss. Many prayers of comfort for the family.


From Old neighbors

We were neighbors with Ralph and Carol for 20 years and they were caring and kind people. We enjoyed knowing them and their children and Grandchildren. A splendid family. Ralph will be missed by many. Our prayers will be going up for Carol and the children as they learn to go on without this loved one.
Wishing you God’s blessing and comfort.

Terry and Teena Shauger and family (Joe, Jennifer; Jared and Megan Gullion)

I have known Ralph as long as I can remember .

I have known him as long as I can remember ,him and my dad (DON HILTY) use to go coon hunting and spent many hours talking to all of use. It didn’t matter if you where a child he would stop and talk to you and make you feel very special.Now him and dad can go hunting as much as they want and set and talk. I love to go and talk to him and Carol. We will miss you so much rest in piece we will see you agin in Haven and talk a lot more, I cant say enough how nice and special man he was.


Uncle Ralph

Uncle Ralph was the one person you could count on. He was loving, caring, honest, and dedicated to his family. I know he is heaven swinging on a porch talking with Jesus about finding a bargain. We will miss him! The Bullock family!
