When I met Ralph he told me about his wife...the love of his life...who passed a few years before. She had finished her arduous battle with breast cancer. When I was diagnosed he reached out to me through his daughter. When we began having fundraisers, he was there! He said something to me that night at the Fireside Gril that will stay with me forever. I had been thanking him for coming and he took my hands in his, looked me in the eyes and said, "where else would I be, you were always there for me!" That was Ralph Farrella...one of the kindest men I have ever known! And Now Heaven has a special angel! He was a caring, loving, vibrant man, father, grandfather & friend! I will miss him always!
My heart goes out to all of his family...but I know he is with his wife again...shining down on the family they made together... a family as beautiful as the man who raised them!
His daughter said something so loving to me at his services...she said that I now have another angel watching out for me! Such an unselfish thing to say when you are grieving the loss of your own father...to try and console someone else! But I will take that ANGEL!!! I Love you Ralph and I am glad you are at peace...
I felt I needed to pay homage to this special man...tomorrow I promise to share the pics and info from our last fundraiser and info on our next fundraisers!
As always, consider helping us help others battling this unfair disease...the only way we can....day by day!
