So very sorry for your loss. We knew Ralph and Yvonne (Buelah) as neighbors, thru the same workplace and sharing our mutual love of antiques and auctions. One of the things that will always remain with us is the love and caring they felt for each other. They were the salt of the earth and two of the most down to earth, nicest people we have ever encountered. We will miss them so much, but we will forever carry in our hearts our memories of them both. We feel blessed that our paths crossed and we are better people from just knowing them. RIP Ralph and Yvonne.

Michael I’m so sorry to hear about your loss. I worked with your Mom at Simmonds Precision. She was such a joy to work with. I love her and I loved hearing her laugh. We would tell her jokes and things just to hear her laughter. We kept in touch and I often called her. I was heart broken to hear her passing. I also I enjoyed seeing your Dad at Auctions.

So sad to read of Ralph’s passing. I always enjoyed seeing him and chatting on my North Street walks. I got to work with him some years ago when we did a John Deere Exhibit at the Sheldon Museum and he loaned us many fascinating documents and other original materials. He had so much knowledge of local history and his dry wit was always a bonus.

Michael and Arthur I am sending you my kindest thoughts at this tender time in your lives. Life is extra challenging when you experience more than one loss within a single month. The one good thing that you should feel is that Ralph and Yvonne are together once again. I wish you pleasant thoughts of the many memories you have. Hopefully you both will become closer while working your way through life without these two important persons. Most sincerely, Bev Landon
