Ralph Falco was my father. He adopted me and sacrificed the rest of his life for me. He didn't have to raise me, but he decided to anyway. He was the most caring man I had in my life. I regret a lot of things, but the number one thing was for taking me and my dads time for granted. You should always be lucky to see your loved ones everyday, because it just takes one second to take that person away from you. It is so devastating that he is gone, I'm still grieving till this very day and it breaks my heart not seeing him everyday, from the moment i wake up, and the moment i walk in the door after school. He was so strong and he fought till the very end. Even after he was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer, he would still work and take care of me and my mom. He retired a little more than over a year ago. Never once did he ever let cancer get in the way of what he was doing in life. We would go to all the father daughter dances and we would have so much fun, and I told him ever time he got dressed up in his suit that he was so handsome. When i was young and we went to the dance, i said he was embarrassing me, but he wasn't an embarrassment of me, I was so proud for him to be called my father. No one in this world would ever take your place in my heart. Not only was he the best man in the world. HE WAS THE STRONGEST. Cancer didn't beat him, he beat cancer. I love and miss you so much dad. You will forever be in my heart

We are just now hearing about this. Your dad was very special to us. We enjoyed our time together at the post and neighborhood. He is missed.

I met Ralph in January 1979 in Nurenburg, Germany. Ralph, Robin and my former wife and I were staying at the BA Hotel while waiting to get housing. Ralph was a great guy and I will mourn his passing. My prayers are extended to Robin and the family. RIP young soldier.
