Got to know Ralph when we both were in Assisted living. He was my next door neighbor and my dining table buddie. We all enjoyed giving him grief about being the only male with 11 females, great laughs we all had. After he got transferred to the Manor section I would visit about once a month and he would take my hand and thank me for visiting. Such a nice man.

Ralph, this picture of you says it all! You are forever etched in my memory with your bibs and cigar. He was a special guy with a bit of an ornery side. You will be missed. My condolences to the Ralph & Irene Shriver family.
