Aaron G. Harrell, May 5, 2021 To Jane and the rest of Ralph's family: I am deeply sorry to learn of Ralph's passing. I've worked with him over a period of almost 17 years and always respected his intellect and his pragmatic approach to business matters. I was lucky enough to socialize with Ralph and Jane on several occasions. Ralph always smiled and softened whenever he spoke of Jane or his children. I will miss working with Ralph. Jennifer Kearns, May 4, 2021 Dear Jane, my sincerest condolences at the passing of your dear husband, Ralph. I know he was your world and the love of your life. I am here for you in whatever you need--any time, any day. I'm praying you can feel the Lord wrapping His arms around you, giving you comfort and peace. Jesus will sustain you during this sad time, and your friend will help you wherever she can. I love you, Jane. Kathy Stroman, May 4, 2021 Ralph was the kindest next-door neighbor I believe I’ve ever had. Right before the ice storm he bought a cover for my outdoor spigot so that it wouldn’t freeze up. When I drove up the driveway and saw it, I knew immediately who would’ve done something that nice for me. I will miss his wave and smile more than I can imagine.
