RON WAS A MAN OF GREAT FAITH. I KNOW THAT HE APPRECIATED THAT I SAID THE DIVINE MERCY CHAPLET FOR HIM FREQUENTLY. HE KNEW THAT GOD'S MERCY ENDURES FOREVER, AND HE RECEIVED IT.

Maureen, Kimberly and Finley, I am so sorry to hear of Ron's passing. He fought the good fight and he's looking on the face of our Savior now. I had the pleasure of working several years with Ron at Rust Engineering. He always spoke so lovingly of you three. Maureen, you made his life complete with the loving home and family you provided him. Prayers and love from me and Teresa.
