    Tracy, my deepest condolences to you and your family. You know there was a heavenly reunion today. Love you.


    My Condolances to the family.


    Condolences to Tracy, Kara and Hunter


    Prayers for all that loved Ralph!!


    Tracy, sorry to hear of the passing of your Dad, Ralph. I know you will greatly miss him. Was not around him that much but always loved he and your mother Carolyn. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.


    Ralph and I had an excellent and respectful working relationship for many many years. My deepest sympathy to his family.


    To Tracy, Aunt Shirley, Aunt Margaret, and all of Uncle Greene's extended family .... his passing is a blessing for him, to be pain free, to be united with his parents , his wife, and his sisters: to be living in the House of the Lord ... for those left behind, a void that will never be filled. My prayers are thoughts are with you. I wonder at what type of potluck dinner his sisters prepared for their reunion? Love to all of you. Joyce (Smith) Farr


    Tracy my sincere condolences to you and your family. I first met Ralph in the 70's in Texas and our friendship was started there and remained until his passing. He was a great union representative here and abroad. I know when I would ask him to represent us overseas he was always willing and was much respected by our colleagues wherever he went. I know Sue and I always enjoyed our group trips with Carolyn and Ralph and the Eyers. Cherished memories forever.
