Dear Audrey, I was so saddened to hear the news of Ralph passing away. He was always my favorite great uncle. My daddy loved him like a brother, and our whole family loved spending time with you! I was also so sad to hear of Martin’s passing, and even more sad not to know his family to contact them sending my condolences. May you be well and always know how much he was loved. And may his memory be a Blessing. Love, Eileen Rosen Westerman and Family!
