One of Ralph's friends, Ginny, provided this picture of Ralph's legs and feet, along with the story that in the early days of hiking, when it came time for group pictures, Ralph always found a way to hide behind something.

Earth specializes in soil transformation, an environmentally-friendly alternative to burial and cremation. Over a 45-day process, we gently transform a body into nutrient-rich soil. We then send this soil to our local conservation land where it’s used for restoration projects such as reforestation and nourishing challenged ecosystems.
