"There is so many stories I could give.  He was always a strong force in my life. He picked on me when I was small so much so. Well, I really didn't think I liked him much... he was like the bratty big brother.. I often thought, (when was small) one day one day I would be able to knock him out. He liked to hold my head an arms link away from him... while he chuckled. (I will never forget that chuckle) I was swinging as hard as I could just praying I would connect just once. I remembering  telling him once i hope he never had kids of his own.. because he was just to mean...Time forward. I was 16 or 17 when he told me he loved me he loved me for the first time.  I looked at him said.. see you can pile that Cole up around your heart as think as you want. That golden heart will always find away to shine threw.  My favorite memories are times I spent with him on the farm. Like when he and Iss shocked themselves checking the electric fence. Or when I gave him a to do list on how to fend the cats and kittens. Because, the big cats wouldn't leave any for the little ones.  Then my senior year in high school he called me almost every month. Asking me if I was still going to graduate, Threating me,  I loved those conversations I wish I could get another phone call I wished I had been able to have spent more time with him. Wished I had a chance to say good bye...  I am so greatful that he did get a chance to raise the beautiful kids he did. We was all blessed to have him in our lives. Rough edges and all..."

"I never had the chance to meet Ralph my loss. I love this family and all the stories I have hard only lets me know that I missed  a chance to know someone that was so cool. Story after story and the look in there eyes when they talk about him it's love loss pain but a lot of times I see pride. They all seem to know how special he really was. They love to say that was my brother my son my uncle my dad. Why does God take someone that was love and needed here on earth? I don't know. But one thing that is for real real he will never be forgotten. Only loved more and more each day. Ralph I hope you now how much you were and are loved , bet you did :)"

"My Bro is the best brother ever. He went from being a buggy little brother "Mom and Dad's only SON"! LOL how many times did we hear that? To being the brother that did no wrong! haha Depending which one of us he ticked off. We could never stay mad at him.  And the other two would stick up for him or make excuses for him. Cause what really counted was we knew he would always be there for us. Sometimes I would try to find help other places first cause if I had done something wrong or "stupid" I got a chewing out to go with the help. None of us three girls like having him mad at us. I love and miss him so very much."
