"We send our thoughts and prayers to Carol, Jeff, Mike and family and friends.  We have such fond memories of spending that week in Vermont with Ralph and all of you.  He was such a kid at heart and was present at every game and good time had by all that week. He even continued to play soccer despite his legs unwillingness to carry him and refused to let that keep him out of the game.  My children enjoyed spending time with him and we really appreciated getting a kind letter from him after the vacation ended. He was a very kind and fun spirited man and we are grateful to have known him"

"Deepest sympathies to the Canning family. We enjoyed getting to know Ralph on vacation in Vermont. He was such a nice man who seemed to enjoy merging our families. After our vacation Ralph sent our grandson
A baseball hat from Kansas City. I remember the day we were leaving VT, Ralph greeted us all as we entered the kitchen and had us sign a paper and write a short note about what we enjoyed on vacation and later he sent us a copy of that paper. We still have it and enjoy looking back on it every once in a while"
