A note from Ralph's daughter--"This is Angela, Ralph Pacelli's daughter. My father chose to be cremated, and was not buried. Rather, Mom and I had scattered his ashes at Banner's Overlook in Green Ridge State Forest in Maryland. When Dad was alive, we enjoyed visiting that overlook from time to time because of its amazing view. (And, also, the man for which the overlook is named after was actually a great-uncle of my mother.)"
