Wanda & family- I’m so so very sorry for your loss. Ralph was a good man. I got re-acquainted with Ralph when I joined CSC in 2006 and got the pleasure of meeting you Wanda! Always loved seeing you both at the church house with Robin, Joe & those grands! Working at GM I heard of Ralph Morrison. Didn’t know him really well but knew he was a class act. Heard only good things. A kind person with a kind smile. God Bless you all!
