    Ralph was a good friend and a hard worker at Bettis.
    I wonder how many rules me and him broke in the 30 years e worked together?

    I just learned that my old pal Ralph passed away. We first met in kindergarten on Versailles Ave in McKeesport and became such good friends. What great times we had during our high school years! You and Judy were great together. Good bye old friend.
