Ron was my history buddy. I got to know him when helping out with the dogs. Ron was so friendly that of course we got talking and found we both enjoyed history. For him, WWII Pacific theatre. For me, WWI. We had great conversations that led me to watching related movies that we would then discuss. I so enjoyed the time spent with him, his hearty laugh and wit.
