Judy, I am feeling sadness in my heart right now, but also feeling blessed that I got to know Ron as a person, not just a coworker at Shattuck. He was truly a genuine caring person who would do anything for others. When I first met Ron, he seemed to be a tough guy, but the more I got to know him, I saw through that tough exterior. I think about him riding his bike and I wonder how many miles he traveled. I will not be able to attend his service in person, but know that I will be thinking of you and pray that memories of your time with Ron will help you get though this. I will miss that smile of his, but will keep it in my heart.

We are so sorry to hear of Ron's passing away. We were neighbors for 16 years and he always had the most perfect lawn and driveway. Our thoughts are with the family at this difficult time.
