    My heart felt condolences to Ralph’s family and friends. I had the privilege of knowing Ralph as a client and later as a dear friend at High Gate. I was his nurse until I retired a few months ago. We often did Sing a longs with the Residents. I could always count on Ralph to bring his mouth organ. He loved his music. He will be greatly missed. He was always ready to participate in any activity. I appreciated his quiet, contented spirit, with that wonderful sense of humor. We pray that the Lord will give you the strength and comfort you with His Presence. I know that Ralph attested to that faith. Blessings, Tina Vandenburg
