Ralph Hempfield was a loving husband, awesome father, wonderful brother and an amazing musician to all who knew him. The day God called Ralph home, the musical notes stood in lines with discordant in their grief before regaining their composure as black tears in embossed relief. The instruments will play his salutation to a musician of note and much more. At the end of the day everyone will stamped their feet with encore. Today is the day you will be laid to rest, but you know what they say, God only takes the best. Everything happens for a reason,  even if we may not agree. Just promise to look after us, and if you can save a spot up there for me. The thought of never seeing you again brings tears to my eyes and even more so, because all of this was such a surprise. But we should never question what God has planned, sometimes it's not meant for us to understand. So as we sit here and mourn the loss of a beloved friend, we have to keep telling ourselves that we will meet again.

Ralph Hempfield will be truly missed by a host of relatives and friends. Psalms 23
