Ladies and gentlemen, family and friends,
As we gather here to celebrate the life of Ralph, I am honored to have the opportunity to share a few words about my dear brother-in-law. Ralph was not only family by marriage but a true friend who shared many special moments with me and the rest of our family. Today, we remember Ralph as a humble and inspirational man.
Although I have not seen much of Ralph in recent years, especially after the loss of my sister, his beloved wife Kathryn, I am grateful to have known him and for the special memories we created together. We all miss him dearly, and the phone conversations we had would often be filled with laughter as we recalled the good ol' days and our shared love of music.

Ralph was an avid musician and played in a small band. As a teenager learning to play the guitar, he was the one who inspired me and helped me develop this wonderful hobby, which I cherish to this day. It was all thanks to Ralph's encouragement and passion for music that made a big impact in my life.
One of the most memorable times we shared together was when Ralph and I agreed to join his brother Bud on a bricklaying job in Wyoming during our college break. Despite facing the coldest winter we had ever experienced, we made the best of it, shared countless laughs, and even managed to make some money together.
Together, Ralph and Kathryn were a joy to be around. I remember a family get-together in Texas when Kathryn's thumb got stuck in a bowling ball and she slid, stomach-first, down the bowling lane. In true Kathryn fashion, she got up laughing hysterically and we all joined in. The love between them was evident, as they were always fun and giving to others. Their generosity knew no bounds, as they continuously reached out to lend a helping hand.
Ralph and Kathryn were both dedicated and committed partners, marrying at an early age and weathering life's ups and downs as a team. Their strong bond was admirable and they leave behind a beautiful family legacy.
We are all deeply saddened by the recent loss of their daughter, Dawn. We take solace in the hope that she was there to welcome Ralph with open arms as he crossed over from this earthly world. Ralph, Kathryn, and Dawn will be dearly missed by all who loved them.
Thank you all for giving me the opportunity to share these few words about Ralph and the cherished memories we shared. May you rest in peace, dear brother-in-law.
Now, I would like to honor Ralph and his family by singing one of their favorite songs, “I'll Fly Away”. I invite you all to join in and remember the beautiful life Ralph lived and the love he shared with us all.
