Ralph is in heaven and he’s sitting at Jesus’ feet with his baby girl. Please take comfort in that. Know that Ralph brought a smile to many folks’ faces and he brought sunshine in their lives while he was here on Earth. Remember, all God’s children are sojourners (just traveling through to learn life’s little lessons) before we get to our true home in heaven. Ralph would have wanted to go before everyone, so he’d be there to welcome you all with open arms. He will be missed by many, but we all have beautiful memories of a life well lived. Thank you Ralph, for a family that loves Jesus. We will all see you in heaven, in Jesus’ time.
Ralph was a wonderful man ! I have many memories with he and his family! As a young boy he would take me fishing on the dam at Lake Chickasha and would brag on me when I pulled one in. I was always included with Dad, Ralph, and the guys at Western when it was Dove Hunting Season! Our families were together very frequently for steaks ?? and cards in which nobody ever cooked a steak like Ralph! I was an only child and looked up to Ralph as a Big Brother, always! He will always be in my heart and soul as I am sure that he left the same impact on many others! RIP Ralph Wiles ! You will always be one in a million ??Heaven has gained another Angel ??Sending prayers and blessings for all who know and Love ?? you while making this transition in this circle of life ??Myself and my family will love ?? you forever ?????????????????
