Gayle,
So sorry to see that your dad passed away. My folks, Rex & Donna Bradford, enjoyed visiting your folks. Dad worked with Ralph at Michigan Wisconsin Pipeline Company in Alden and mom enjoyed Marsha’s company in various clubs in Lyons. The women kept in touch at Christmas even after my folks transferred with Misc.-Wisc. to the Miami, TX station and finally to Weatherford, OK where they retired. They enjoyed visiting with your folks at the Misc.-Wisc. retirement get-togethers. My folks both passed away in 2019. There will be many familiar faces welcoming your dad into heaven!

I had the opportunity to see Uncle Ralph more often when he moved to Denver. I also visited Aunt Marsha and him a couple times when they lived in Lyons. What a lovely couple. We picked choke cherries for jam where he use to work. We also watched a 4H horse competition at an outdoor center. He really liked horses, and he & Dad could not figure out why I don't/can't ride. Just get on one! Aunt Marsha, Uncle Ralph, and Gayle had many a Holiday at Dad's, and it was continued after Mom and Aunt Marsha passed. One Easter it was just Uncle Ralph, Dad, Gayle, and me. The electricity went out and there was a severe rain storm outside & it was very dark. Luckily, I had already cooked everything, & Uncle Ralph was laughing and very calm. He said something to the effect of letting the tornado pass. I lit some candles & we continued with dinner. I will never forget that Holiday & he is dearly missed. Debbie

Ralph and Marsha were next door neighbors to us for much of our lives. Always helpful and kept a close eye on our mom after our dad passed. He was captivated by my daughters and vice versa. After saying hi to grandma they would head outside to see if he noticed their arrival and more often than not, he did. What hugs to see with ear to ear grins and laughter. Another Angel gone to heaven.

Have happy memories of the fun we had with your Dad and Mother at Kanopolis Lake. Your Dad always had a funny story to tell and much laughter. Sorry for your loss.
