I didn't know Ralph, but I read his posts, and appreciated his insight on others. I read of his passing, and could not find an obit in the Bulletin...maybe this will express a Mavahi farewell to his family....
This came from the Lewiston, PA Sentinel...

Thanks, Archie for letting us know about Ralph's death. This will truly be a loss to many of us. We always enjoyed his sweet spirit and ability to get us all communicating with one another. He will truly be missed.
