My thoughts are with you Aunt Joyce, Ronnie, Dennis, and Karen.
No one could do a Donald Duck voice impersonation like Uncle Ron, and I couldn't tell you how many times I answered the phone to hear 'Donald Duck' talking to me. In that spirit: "quack quack quack quack, Uncle Ron".

Pristine white t-shirt and clean dark blue jeans is the image I will carry forever of Ron. One brother in the midst of otherwise all the sisters. We are saddened that he was not able to rebound from this recent health issue, but are confident that he has been welcomed in heaven by all of those who have passed on before him. Heartfelt condolences to our dear sister, Joyce and children.
