Our hearts are so sad. 😢 Mr & Mrs Threewits were our "across the street" neighbors. We loved chatting with them when they were sitting out on the patio & they always enjoyed watching our grandkids playing outdoors & riding their bikes. We will really miss Ralph. RIP dear man. Bud & Janey Carrico

With sympathy.
