    Evite details here to RSVP

    Time has passed, restrictions have been lifted, and we have found a beautiful new place which reflects Ralph’s spirit — so now it’s time to come together and celebrate Ralph‘s life. Please let us know if you can come either in person or via zoom.  

    Order of Events

    1:00 – 2:00

    We will greet, gather and share stories. You can check out a slide show of fond memories over some light snacks and drinks while being serenaded by Kalae, a wonderful Hawaiian Musician.


    We will come together formally to speak and share stories and tributes to Ralph and his amazing life.


    We will reconvene and mingle to share our personal memories  informally, and give comfort while sharing some laughs and tears over some beverages and what’s left of the light snacks.


    We will say our goodbyes with virtual or live hugs and elbow bumps.

    Please RSVP if you will be attending in person or via Zoom or if you are not able to attend. (Zoom details to be provided shortly)

    We hope to see you there

    Also please let us know if you would like to speak to share a tribute to Ralph in advance.

    COVID NOTE: We expect most of the people attending in person will be vaccinated so Masks are not required as it’s predominately outside in a large spacious outdoor area with a small indoor area. So Masks are optional.  We will have Zoom to watch and to speak if you aren’t yet comfortable for in person gatherings or can’t make it in person.  The Zoom portion will also be recorded for those who cannot attend.

      Corinne Koppel Thank you, Claire. Ralph learned a lot being Corinne's step-dad. He also liked to quote Ted, "Children socialize their parents." This was so true for us. See you on July 18! Hugs, Caroline
