What I remember of Ralph from my time at St. Mark's Church, Shearstown, are the twinkle in his eye, his pleasant smile, and an impish kind of humour, and that he liked catching eels in Sheartown Brook. May all that was good and special about him as a person uphold and comfort each of you as you give thanks for your father, partner, friend. I'm planting a tree in his memory.
