Dear Florence. I was so sorry to hear of Ron’s passing. Dad and I so enjoyed getting to know you and Ron when playing crib at Kinross Hall in Parkland. We had lots of great laughs and some really good games. We will miss him immensely. Sending you lots of love and prayers.
Catherine, Mike and all the Meaney girls.
