  1. I feel for the Family of the Girl he Murdered, and the BFF and Son he Betrayed horribly. I do hope he made his Peace with our Lord Jesus. God forgives and I do hope he made his Peace with God.

  2. This guy killed his best friends daughter in law and stole her baby. Hope he made his Peace with God though. Can’t say where he is spending Eternity. He betrayed his BFF and family horribly. I doubt they forgave him. But God has I’d he asked him to.

  3. To me, this is the most secure way to journey cheap. You will know if you need dressier outfits or casual energetic clothing. Well initial we require to understand how time functions. Offer guest with snacks and (cheap) wine.

  4. You know this guy was a psychopath and a murderer right???? He kidnapped a baby and killed the mother brutally! Also, he was her father’s best friend! You all are sick!

  5. Ralph was my close dear friend, a brother, I learned a lot from him. We had many interesting and exciting conversations and laughed deeply. I was always in awe of his accomplishments (although I never once heard him brag about anything except his family). I admired how involved he was with his family; nothing in this world was more important to him. I will miss him. I’m truly sorry for your loss.

  6. Sorry to hear about the loss of a great man. I’m sure Ralph is doing great and enjoying his newfound life while keeping watch over us.

  11. Nancy,
    I’m Shad Skov’s mother. I want to send my deepest sympathy to you in the loss of Ralph. I grieve for him too as a friend of Shads and part of Shad’s extended family. I will always be greatful to Ralph for his frienship, mentoring and help for Shad. Know that he was loved and you are not alone. I’m so happy that he is free of pain and suffering and I’m sure he rattled the gates of heaven as he road in on his motor cycle.

    You’re in my thoughts and prayers.
