It's difficult to believe that Ralphie has been with his Lord for 15 months now. Not a day passes when we don't think about him and some of the crazy things he used to do.

It was wonderful to see the Boomers again at the Celebration of Life Rally-Remembering Ralph "Ralphie" Hamilton this past April. It was a real treat, seeing the display of photographs of the "Boss" and his "posse" throughout the years at the various Florida Boomer rallies.

We'll never forget you, Bubba.

We too miss Ralphie and the rest of his posse. It is unreal as to how fast time goes by. THe older I get the faster it goes.
I often think of Ralph because he lived in Gainesville where my daughter is; so when I think of one I think of the other. I know that if Ashley would have needed anything Ralphie would have helped us out. Yes I do miss him.
I hope to someday be able to slowdown and visit with the Florida Boomers.

We had been on the road and had to come back because my mothe rhad a heart attack on Labor Day. Life had been very busy but we will always remember Ralphie's humor and making the rallies interesting.

Just returned from our annual Florida trip and thought of Ralphie when we were down there. I can't believe that it has been so long ago that we all met. I remember his words,"Nice to meet you, now you can take some of Cheri's heat"...miss the guy...

We also miss Ralphie. There is not a time that we are camping that we do not think of something that Ralph did. He was the first person we met when we got into camping. He was one person that if you had spent any time with would give you lasting memories. He was one special person

Ralphie and good memories

Barb and I were thinking of Ralphie yesterday. What a great person who went out of his way to make you feel welcomed. A true gem that is also reflected in his family.

Best wishes to the Hamilton family.
