I was out of town and just read of Ron's passing. My first thought was of Ron in high school and this gentle giant with a heart of gold. I seldom saw Ron after high school but every time i did, he put a smile on my face. Lavern if you read this, please send me an email at the address listed. Keep his memory close and smile when you think of him.
Janice and Family, I am sorry for the loss of your brother,husband, father, son. My thoughts and prayers go out to you.
Dear Lori, Dani, and family, I'm so sorry to hear about the loss of Ron. He was such a wonderful person with a gret heart. As you know my father thought the world of him. They were best friends and he was like a second dad to me growing up. They were always outside fooling around in the garage. Of course I had to be out their, the tom boy I was. We had a lot of laughs! He was a very smart guy with such a passion for working on cars and farming. I just want to thank him for being such a wonderful friend to my family. His life was cut short but I'm thankful I got to be a part of it. Your in my thoughts and prayers. Love, Heidi
