My mother Maxine Beard has been a resident of Wintersong since last April.  My family has visited often and become acquainted with Ralph.  We always enjoyed talking with him and sharing his memories of growing up - especially cooking.  His specialty was gravy he told us with the secret ingredient coffee.  He entertained us with his harmonica music and beautiful voice.  Two weeks ago he gave my sister's grandson a ride on his lap on his wheelchair.  We shall sorely miss him.  
Sincerest condolances.

Dear Roger and Brenda,
We are so sorry to hear about the loss of your father.  We know the feelings of loss.  Please know our hearts and prayers will be with you as you go through this time.  
As words of advice all I can say is "Take care of yourself".  I have been weakest in my mourning when I am all worn out and tired.  Taking care of yourself and making sure your needs are met, especially at this time will help you as you mourn.
In God's love,
Ron and Becky Koval
