  2. candle 4Dear Family,
    I am a stranger to you but, every morning I drove to work I’d see Ralph walk along Artesia Blvd. Many times I felt like stopping to tell him kudos for taking his morning walk, sadly I never did.
    I am very saddened to know that his life was ended in such a tragic and unfair way.
    My deepest condolences 🕊

    You are forever in our hearts. Giovanni will miss taking walks around the block with you, and you playing with him. I’ll miss you taking me to volleyball practice and playing games with me when I was younger.

    Makaylee and Giovanni
