JESUS SAID: "I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE; NO MAN COMES TO THE FATHER BUT THROUGH ME." (John 14:6)




Ralph & Verna, Proud Parents and Grandparents


 


Ralph was born and raised in southern New Jersey, near where we now live.  Verna hails from Northwestern Pennsylvania.  Here are some childhood photos of Verna's, followed by a few of Ralph's. Actually, we are still not grown up! To learn more about our siblings and children, click the appropriate tabs above.

Both of us graduated from Bob Jones University. We met in the Art Gallery where we both worked. Verna watched over visitors and answered their questions while Ralph made picture frames and did restoration work in the gallery workshop.


Ralph sang in several opera choruses, "Messiah," "Creation" and also painted backdrops for theatrical productions
