Eva and Bear: May God bless you and ease you through the extreme grief of losing Ron (SH). I know he was the center of your world and I’m so very sorry for your loss. Ron was a wonderfully kind and considerate person. He was smart and loving, and very compassionate. A truly good soul who is loved and terribly missed already. I pray you are comforted by his love and the memories you shared together.
Please Father, welcome him into your kingdom with a loving embrace and may he rest there in eternal peace.
