In tribute to you my dear RAlph, I write these words: Love, Joy, Loyalty, Care and a wonderful spirit. You are missed daily. So many things have happened and many times I wished you were here to share and enjoy such as graduations, Christmas, marriage, trips and the list goes on. You are always in my heart. I think of the different food dishes that you prepared and sometimes I try to cook as you cooked for me. I come close to but not exactly the flavor that you made.... Evenings are not the same without you and sometimes I think if I just had a little more time but that was not meant to be.... You are such a great guy and you are missed. We now have 10 grandchildren and 2 great granddaughters and one new son-in-law, Felix, who I know you would enjoy and like. I love you and memories of you are in my heart and soul. Sometimes I think how lucky I am to have had you as a husband, a father, a grandfather a great grandfather and as a friend. I think about you wherever I go even when I ride over certain streets in Orlando, in Winter Park,(track meets), Sanford, Bonita Springs, Naples, St. Augustine, Palatka, Crescent City, Tallahassee, Pensacola, Jacksonville and tons of other places and states, cruises, Miami, Key West, Ft. Lauderdale, Beaufort, Charleston, Washington, DC, Annapolis, Baltimore, Richmond, Fayetteville, St. Louis, Kentucky, Louisiana, New Orleans, Gulfport Mississippi, Texas, Las Vegas, Nassau BAhamas, Conzumel, Freeport and Tuscon, Arizona. I thank the good Lord for bringing you my way and all that you offered me, I accepted. I miss you so very much and when I close my eyes I imagine that are nearby and somehow I feel a little better, and I remember your velvety voice and how you sang with all of your heart in the choirs and in the fraternity. Now you are resting with the Lord and I want you to know that I doing the very best that I can with the good Lord's help. Love you and missing you and it's almost 6 years that you made the transition. Love you forever, Yours, Bunny

My tribute to you, Ralph is one of appreciation and thanks. I learned so very much from you from 25 to 65 yrs. of age. You gave me so much. Your love, loyalty, humor and compassion for others will always be remembered by me. I am doing the best that I can. Sometimes I feel a little lonely but I get busy helping someone or go bowling, sing in the choir or watch the history channel as we did together. Sometimes I go to Winter Park and walk around Rollins College and then get in the car and ride around just seeing some of the places we went to and I smile. You are the greatest guy a girl could ever ask for. Carol Dennison is in heaven now. We enjoyed double dating with her and Col. Dennison. Now they are together again.The Lord knows best and my dear just know that you are missed and I look at the family pictures and think what a smart man you are and Veteran's DAy is coming soon and I will honor you on that day in a special way. Thank you for being my friend, my husband and my Bunny. Love you always. Lorraine

Lord , I thank you for this day and I thank you for Ralph, the father of my children and grandfather of 10 and great grandfather of one and another one on the way. Lord, you have been so good to us. I miss Ralph in so many ways. He's my soulmate who understood me but loved me for who I am. I miss going to the trailer for fun and rest. Most of all I miss the conversations that we had in the evening time when all was done for the day. Thank you and tor being the man that took care of the family and took care of me as only you could. Thank you for your humor which I miss and thank you for your honesty and courage because you were always honest with me and courageous because none of us know what you went through In Viet Nam. Thank you for your bravery and for being a gentleman. I love you and your family loves you and you are sorely missed but we know that you are with God looking down on us. I try to do what is right and when I make mistakes God helps me through and Dorothy and Charlotte help me when they can and I know that they miss you too. Yvette and Denise communicate from time to time and they love you to and miss you in their own way. You know that one day this life will be over for me and then I will see you again but until then know that I will light a candle for you and remember what you told me that I will be your shining star my love.You are loved by all who knew you and the Coopers, the Ringlings, the Farriors, and your church members and your fraternity brothers too Also the Host of Orlando had a fish fry and you were missed. Joe and Joe cooked the fish just as you did and Glenn helped out too. Darling you are the best. God will take care of all of us in Jesus name. Amen

Ralph, I thought about you today and I lost it. Dear you were such an inspiration to me. I thank the Lord for you my love. I am trying to lose some weight. I have had a few medical issues but I am improving. I pray every day sometimes two or three times asking God to help me be a better person. I rode to the park and just sat there thinking about those delicious sandwhiches that you made for me. Thank you sweetheart for all that you did for me. Love, Bunny

Life goes on but do I miss so many things about you. Such as your voice and your tenderness, your wit, your calmness, your expressions of your love of God. I give this tribute because you are my knight in shining armour. You are a gentleman, a friend, a leader, a father, a teacher in many ways, a cook, yes one that I miss. You are a repairman, a brother, a dancer, a comedian, a problem solver, my husband, my confidant, my love, my songbird, my writer and my proofreader. You are 83 today and with the Lord. I love you Sweetie.

It's a good morning that the Lord has made. I hope you are enjoying your day. I miss you especially this fall. So many things I would like to share with you. I am doing better at projects and trying to get things done in a timely manner. I have made some new friends and and I am appreciating all of the things that you did for me more and more. You are a giver, and you knew me. I am so glad that you came into my life. I miss your smile and sometimes I just close my eyes and I see your handsome face. I am happy when I think of you dear one. All that I am I owe to God but I owe so much to you for I learned about life with you. You taught me so very much and those conversations will always be a part of me. You are the best husband a girl could ask for. You are my shining star and brightly you shine in my heart and in my soul. Love you Sweetie. Lorraine also known as your Bunny. If the Lord allows I will be 69 in a few days. You gave me two beautiful daughters and two beautiful daughters by marriage. Now we have 10 grandchildren and 1 beautiful great granddaughter. She is so cute. Love, Lorraine

I leave a tribute to Ralph Leonard Offer, a lifetime member of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, a member of the Host of Orlando, a member of three choirs at St. Mark A.M.E. Church. Happy 80th birthday to you. You are sunshine of my life. You made me happy to be your wife. I am still finding notes that you left me to read and I read them and smile. I enjoyed all the little things that you did to help me out at work and with community projects. You are what a man should be to a woman. My tribute to you is sincere and real just as you are to me. Love, Bunny

I lay a flower for you. You gave me flowers, candy, and you gave me a wonderful life. I will treasure the memories that we had together. (the breakfasts, the candle light dinners, the trips, the books that we read together, the choir that we sang in, the way that you played the piano, how you repaired my sewing machine and most of all how you took care of me during difficult times. Love, Lorraine
