One of my Spanish teachers from high school passed away last week. Any of the Nisky crew will have fond memories of Ron “Ralph” Raphael and will recall his protracted struggle with cancer. I don’t have much of a belief in the afterlife, but I’d like to hope that he’s resting peacefully. He deserves it.

Any of his former students who want to leave a short message for his family can do so by signing his memorial book.
