Our hearts go out to Carolyn, Ralph's sons, our dear Aunt Jeanne and Uncle Ken, and our cousins Donna, Mike, and Ken and their families with the passing away of my dear cousin Ralph. We wish we could be there in person to give our sympathies and hugs. The distance between here and Alberta is really felt at this time. Please know we will be there in thought, and wish we could be there in person, at Ralph's memorial service on August 7th. Our prayers are for peace and comfort for all of you.

Ralph will be missed. He taught me, a reporter, everything I needed to know about potable water. He was a wonderful man with an amazing amount of patience.

To the Family of Ralph Havinga,
To all of you that loved Ralph, Dave & I send our deepest condolences to you all. Especially, to his Mom & Step Dad, Jeanne & Ken & also to Joan, widow of Michael, Ralph's father. And to Ralph's brother Micheal & family, Donna & family & Ken & family. And of course, to Ralph's children, our hearts go out to you always. Having grown up with with you all, my memories are endless, and my sorrow at your loss is truly palpable. My brother Richard & Ralph were inseparable, the injuries suffered together, I am sure, are incalculable! - However, I know that they set out to see how much damage they could inflict - on each other! All in good fun, but still painful, non the less!! These memories will be with me forever, as will their scars of bravery! Ralph brought so very much joy & laughter into everything he did & will be remembered by all who loved him!
I wish you peace my friend, & I hope that you find it wherever you may be.
Sending our love to all, especially your wife & children & to your brothers and sister & their families. Most of all, may your parents be blessed to know that you are in the care of a higher power, no more suffering, just eternal Joy and rest. You will be missed!
Our love to you and yours, always,
Christine & Dave Harris
