    Dear Ralph,
    I have never meant you but you are a very big part of my life. I am married to your son John. I wish, with all my might, you could have been a part of your sons life. Your life was taken too soon. We have two boys together, Jonathan and Dakota. Both are grown and doing well. They both are very aware of the sacrifices you gave. You and I share a very special date. Do you know the day and year your life ended is the same day and year I was born? 11/17/1965. I have always felt I am supposed to be where I am, that this was meant to be. I thank you for your son, he is a good man that always tries to do his best and has been a good father and husband. I hope someday we will meet! Until then....
    Love your daughter-in-law,
    Melanie Brown
