It's been 40 years ago that my family moved to Georgia. It was two days ago that I was remembering a trip to the races in Blue Island with the Rippy boys, my dad, my brother, and Rip. I hope it will be said about me one day that the only memories they have are those like I have of the Rippy family. The Moran's are a better family because of the Carl Rippy family. You are loved in Georgia The Douglas Moran Family

For the love of my Pa. If I could only learn to love half as much as what you have loved our family and all the lives you touched, I may rest knowing that I was successful. Thank you Pa for teaching me what love really is. I hope you're dancing with Jesus!

Rip was one of the finest men I have every known and I consider it a privilege to have known him. He and Loretta raised a fine family. I cannot be there for you at the wake because I have had a small stroke that has left me temporarily home bound. I will be there in spirit none the less. He lived a good life and raised a fine family whose love for each other will gather the strength to get through this and support you all through this and especially Loretta. So I send my love and support to you Loretta, Judy, Sandy, Mark and your families. With all my love, Pete

To the family, I sincerely, share your sorrow & sweet memories too. You would be surprised to know what an impact your whole family had on me as a teenager & adult. I was actually babysitting the boys the night the Beatles were introduced to America on the Ed Sullivan Show. Someone far away remembers & thinks of you all with love & respect. Peg
