Condolence: Dear Gloria Sending sincere condolences to you and your family. I was thinking back to the early 80"s and even then Ralph was on the go working hard for the community always friendly and kind. You and I would meet on the street and you would say "are you Sheila or Madge and I would say "are you Sheila or Gloria". Take care in the coming days. Madge
