Iw as so saddened to hear of Mr Micali's passing. I remember him as an always smiling, friendly neighbor across the street. I am sure he will be sadly missed by his family and those who knew him.

Ralph was a wonderful neighbor for many years and always friendly and congenial. He was well-read and conversant in a variety of subjects including politics and sports. His number one priority, however, was his family. He will be missed.

Uncle Ralph, or "Feluch" (Felluucio} the nickname his brother Joe used to call him which means Little Happy One...was just that to my family and I, pure happiness... Every memory I have is one of smiles and support. I especially love the memory of him calling his niece, my mother, Judy when she found out she had Ovarian Cancer and he wanted as many details as possible about treatment recommendations so he could do research at the Library for her, and of course he did. It brought such warmth to us all to know how much he cared. Throughout my life He always always made me laugh and it makes me smile now to imagine him laughing alongside all of our loved ones in Heaven... I love you Uncle Ralph, always and forever.

Our Grandfather had the quickest wit, always making us laugh. He was proud of his military service and had many stories to tell about his time on Guadalcanal during WW2. His lasting legacy will be in the wonderful family he started. We will miss you Grandpa.
