Mary, Janie, and Billy......I was so sorry to read of Ralphs passing. I dont read the newspapers much anymore and dont get on F B as much as I used to. Since I sold moms house, I dont go to Laurens like I used to and stop by to see yall. He was always a good friend and quick to share a laugh or a good story. It was also fun being in the Guard wit him back in the day. My thoughts And prayers are with all yall. Take care.
