I've done a lot of home care over the years but none touched my heart like Ralph. He never spoke an angry word in the 3 years I cared for him. He was always agreeable to anything. We use to set an reminse about different farmers we knew and about "the mill" (Deminstoy Lumber) where he had met my sons that worked there. As his health began to deteriorate I would still talk to him about these things and we would look at farm magazines together. RIP Ralph. I will never travel up over Beeman hollow and down Smith Hill without thinking of you. Thank you Linda & Keith for giving me the honor and privilege of being one of Ralph's care givers. You are all GREAT people.
Sincerely Janice Eggleston
