Ralph did a lot of Work on the Dreisbach house on Broad St in Jim Thorpe. Here he is enjoying some White Water rafting on the Lehigh with friends and his Niece who owns and operates the Dreisbach House Store.

After we bought our farmhouse it was quickly apparent the old chimney for the wood stove was a hasty addition and nowhere near the quality of the other original ones. One quiet Sunday morning just before 7 A.M. we awoke to the clanking of scaffolding being heaved off of Ralph's big red Ford work truck. We scrambled to jump into action as if we had been awake for some time. Later that afternoon the old stack was gone. Ralph laid out the lines for the footer and told me to dig it 24" deep. It was hard going by hand with a pick ax and shovel and every other swing found large chunks of iron stone if not every swing. Thinking myself crafty I dug the deal 28" deep. Ralph came to inspect the work and thoughtfully removed the ever present toothpick from his lips. "Do you know what I was thinking?" he said. What's that I said. You might as well dig it 32", you know what I mean ?". I just smiled and nodded and went for the pick ax and shovel as he used "Do you know what I mean ? " over and over to explain what he meant. He came back the next day to find the hole 36" deep. He once again removed the toothpick and said "Do you know what I was thinking?" I erupted into laughter before I could even answer . He then went on to tell me it should be twice as wide. I dug it twice as wide.

I am so sorry for your loss. Words cannot begin to express the pain that comes when we lose our loved ones in death. The promise that God gives us in Isaiah 25:8 can bring us much comfort in time of sadness as it reads that God “will swallow up death forever and wipe away tears from all faces.” In the very near future we have the hope of being reunited with our loved ones by means of a resurrection promised to us at Acts 24:15. Until that time, may your memories of Ralph help sustain your grief. May the “God of all Comfort” be with you in the days ahead. (2 Corinthians 1:3,4)
