Words can't express the emptiness that I am feeling. Ralph was more to me than just my uncle. He was my surrogate father, mentor and friend. He always welcomed me without reservation or judgement. He welcomed my family with open arms. We spent time just talking about cars, family and life. He always made time for anyone when needed without any questions asked. I will miss our talks and time together just sitting around and enjoying each other's company.
To the father I always wanted, the uncle I was lucky to have and the friend I will always miss. Until the day we meet again.
Love and miss you always.
