  2. Sincere sorrow upon hearing of cousin Ralph’s passing always known to me as Sonny. Ralphs mother was my mothers sister. Christine Hoskam. I guess I am the last of that era. I remember the war years and keeping track of Ralph’s life at that time. The last time I saw Ralph was at my sister’s 50th wedding anniversary.Chris and Bob Ferris. I’m Jack Voss , Middlesex Ny
