Ralph made a powerful contribution to our program to help the village of Boileau in Haiti become self-sustaining. He went to Haiti with us on several trips to achieve a better understanding of what was needed and how well programs were working. His combination of compassion and wit and energy and practical assessment was invaluable. We will miss him, but he has already left his mark on the lives of hundreds of Haitian villagers. His impact will live on. Also, he will remain a vital part of our organization. He helped shape our structure and strategy as well as the successful application of 501(c)(3) status. But mostly, we enjoyed his presence. We will miss him, even as the marks of his help stay with us. Mike Frost, Director, Haitian Pilgrims

Rose, Please accept our condolences. Ralph was a good friend and a great help to me when I was Grand Knight at St Ann’s council. I really appreciated his help during his many years as a member of the Knights of Columbus. I will remember him as a good friend–even though he was a Cowboy’s fan.! Regards, Paul Bladl

Excellent customer service, they made you feel like you were their only customer. Very helpful and explained what we should expect during the process. They basically took care of our needs during this time. They contacted DFW National Cemetery for us which made it a smooth experience. Definitely will use them again.
