A few years ago, I lost my big brother, Ralph, to mental illness. He had the best sense of humor and truly put a smile on everyone’s faces. He was my best friend and I found myself laughing, and smiling, a bit less after he passed. Today, the moments I catch myself smiling and the people that make me laugh, I cherish all a little more. I hope you all can do the same.
February is a special month for me and my family as we celebrate my brother’s birthday. On the 22nd, it would have been his 27th birthday. He loved all animals, and our family dog at the time became his best companion until his last day. Dogs provide pure, unconditional love and are happy with the simple aspects of life. They can truly teach us all a lesson.
So, this is how the Ralph bandana came to be. Although simple, a smile is all a person needs sometimes. My hope is that this bandana can be a reminder to all to be kind. I know not everyone knew Ralph, but to honor him, I have always tried to spread the same smiles he would have today. I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate his birthday! A special thank you to Cali Fluff Co. for working with me on this idea. This is a special bandana to me, and I appreciate any and all support. Please share photos of your pups (and of yourself) smiling using the hashtag #RalphSmiles.
