Our sympathy is extended to the family and friends of Ralph Liff, who has passed at the age of 103. As I wrote last week’s note of good wishes to him, he passed.
Ralph lived a long and had a wonderful life with his family and wife Lenore. We will miss his spirit, his community contribution and dancing at lakeside music. Funeral arrangements to be announced at a later date. Condolences to the family of Thomas Tierney.
Our thoughts are also with the family of Cristina Bollinger.
