I was so sorry to hear of Ralph's passing. He was a true hero in so many ways. He greeted me so warmly every time I returned to Milford and saw him at the It Vets. We had so many interesting and fun chats. He loved to hear about my life in Australia and I loved hearing his stories of his children and grandchildren who he loved very much. Catching up with Ralph was always a high light of my trips back to Milford. My sincere condolences to his family and all who knew and loved him.
