I was saddened to hear of Ron’s passing. I know how much he meant to all of you. I only met him a couple of times, but Shelly always spoke so highly of him. I wish there was something to take away this heartbreak. Always remember you will all meet up again in Heaven in Gods time

I always enjoyed talking with Ron about anything and everything from Bonsai gardening to old, movies. I will miss his wit, his charm, his smile and witnessing the strength of family and true love he shared openly with everyone he touched. I leave this Irish Blessing: Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there... I do not sleep.
I am the thousand winds that blow...
I am the diamond glints on snow...
I am the sunlight on ripened grain...
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you waken in the morning's hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of gentle birds in circling flight...
I am the soft star that shines at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry—
I am not there... I did not die..
