  • So sorry to hear of Ralph passing. I’ve known him for over sixty years. Went to Amity school, worked at Chattanooga Glass, went coon hunting together, traded guns and dogs. We shared many good stories. He was one of a kind. As we got older, our contact became to few and long distance, but he was truly a good friend. We’re all blessed to have known him. My thoughts and prayers are for your family.
