To Judy and Family, Please accept my sincerest condolences on the passing of Ralph. You knew him as a husband, father, provider, and relative who will be greatly missed. I knew him as a friend for life who I met in sixth grade when he introduced himself to me during recess in 1956, the year St. Augustine of Canterbury grade school was formed. From that time on we became lifelong friends. No trip to Belleville was complete until I met with Ralph to catch up and reminisce about our teen exploits. Our meetings always recalled great memories filled with lots of laughs! I will miss you Ralph. Know that the Berhman Family will be in my prayers during this time of mourning.
