  1. Dear Judy: So sorry to hear about your Dad’s passing. He is at peace now. You were the best daughter he could have had and no one was more loved.

  2. My deepest sympathies uncle Ralph was a great man. uncle Ralph will be with his family

  3. As one of our songs says, “Hold this family in your heart/take care of all their loved ones/bless them as they find their way/and hold them in the arms of grace.” I am one of the ‘lady singers’ from Berkshire Threshold Choir who had the joy and privilege of singing to Ralph over the past months. He and I had joked about his getting out of bed and dancing with me after he told me a story about his liking to dance and ‘all the ladies’ wanting to dance with him :). We last sang to Ralph on Tuesday afternoon, after the hospice chaplain had anointed him, and said goodbye to him with Dona Nobis Pacem. May your hearts recall many wonderful memories. Blessings to you all.
