i never had the chance to meet him. i do remember going to his brothers church in williamsburg. i remember staying up for over 24 hrs cooking 1000 pieces of chicken, 20 hams, and four turkeys. delivering them to the memorial service to feed all rons friends and family so they could just sit back, relax, and enjoy all the good memories of ron. rest in peace ron. you are greatly loved and missed by many.

Adriane, I know it's been some time now, but the loss may still be tender. I pray that you and the family are trusting in the Lord and in the power of His might to continue to keep you. So sorry to hear about Aunt Ethelyn. We (OH Family) are praying for everybody.
