We remember you

Hey, Ralph, we remember you whenever we gather, which is only once every 5 years, I guess. You are there with us, though, in spirit and in a the stories. Yes, we remember you.

I was a Musket CE in 69 and I can also recall Ralphs' love of flying. It wasn't enough to hang it out daily in slicks, he had to do more.As with the crews of 999 & 206 "We will remember" To all their families I can only say we too, loved them and miss them all.

Thank you

I would like to thank you for your service to our country and to share a Bible verse that your life has demonstrated. "Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends." John 3:16
I would also like to tell your friends and family that I have prayed for them.

They are not dead that live in our hearts.

My Dear Brother - How I thank God for the love and influence you've had in my life. It is as easy as remembering my own name to recall all the great times we've had together. I have but to think of you to conjure up your smile and bask in the warmth of the presence you still exert in my life.
TO ALL OF RALPH'S FRIENDS IN THE 176TH AHC AND 198TH LIB:
I remember like it was yesterday the letters Ralph would send home. He spoke of you fondly. I am currently working on this generation of the family tree and would like to dedicate a chapter to Ralph. I'm trying to establish an accurate time line for Ralph's tour and can't get a handle on the units he served with. I'm also interested in anything you can tell me about his tour or stories about him. Any jpeg or bitmap images of Ralph and his aircraft are appreciated. Thank you
