I am quite sad to hear of the passing of Ralph. We lived just down the street from McKay's and spent a lot of time there. Ralph and my brother Ken were quite close at one time. Please accept my sincere condolences to all of the family. Rest in peace Ralph - Posted by: Robert Crawley (Acquaintance) on: Sep 03, 2022
