Ron was one of the sweetest gentlemen I have ever met. Kind, gracious, and a smile. I know you will miss him terribly Ann. Sorry I could not be there for services but my thoughts are with you.

I really enjoyed getting to know Ron. He was a great person and I will miss his ornery smile. Thanks for sharing him with our poker group. I will be out of town on Friday, but my thoughts and prayers are with all of you.
