I knew "Mr Ralph," through Claremont where my mother had
been a resident. He was most gentle, kind man -- always ready to give you a smile. The earth has lost a sweet spirit - but
Heaven has gained one. My sympathy to his family as well as the staff and his friends at Claremont.
So saddened to hear of Ralph's passing.
Enjoyed going to his and Mary's home in Middlesex and later when they moved to the mountain.He always made you feel welcome.
Lost track of him a few years after his brother Oliver died. Didn't know he was in a nursing home, he always had a contagious
smile and laugh. You will be missed.
Mrs. Oliver F. Barrick (Jean and family)
