Ralph always asked if the car was done. Well Ralph its in work. I wish he saw the car done. He was always smiling and made me laugh. When I was younger he always gave me good advice and a smack when I needed it. I'll miss you Ralph. Bob

I'll never forget when I went to visit Laura at her Parents house. I was in my Corvette. Ralph came out to look at my car. He said, Glad to see you didn't put any stickers on it and don't! I never did!
