Marge and I were very sorry to hear of Ralph's passing. He was one of Marge's first cousins and as such was close family. We've spent years visiting and enjoying the company of Ralph, Sue, Jodi and Chuck mostly at their home but also when they owned the Beach N Towne. We also used to see Ralph at Church when we visited the Cape. We hope that with the support and prayers of close family, extended family and Ralph and Sue's many friends, the family will find a measure of comfort and peace. May cousin Ralph rest in the peace of Christ.
