You created so many wonders that will always live in our hearts.

We'll miss you Ralph. You will forever be the brightest star in our galaxy.

Always a believer that the deceased no longer follow on Facebook I shall pass.
Reading even some of his designs does indeed bring a smile to my face. Designs that have become so iconic and wrapped up in the dreams of children and adults alike.
A wonderful intuitive designer indeed and thank you for posting this.
