Dear Simpson Family, I am so sorry for the loss of your husband and brother, Ralph, Great husbands are a blessing and good brothers are hard to come by and it sure hurts to lose either a husband or a brother. I know that Ralph was both a great husband and a wonderful brother. My heart breaks along with yours. My prayers are with each of you. Lean into the arms of Christ and He will carry you through this.
