Hi Terry,

Words cannot express the sadness we feel about the loss of Ron. Life at Four Seasons just won't be the same without Ron's presence. Ron was the catalyst that brought so many diverse people in our Four Seasons community together. Everybody liked/loved Ron -- it was just a given!! Ron's outgoing nature and his extremely generous nature made him stand out among our friends. Although Bruce and I have only known you and Ron for a relatively short period of time, you have become like family to us. It is my hope that you will remain in our lives and that you will return to Palm Springs to help fill the emptiness/void of Ron's passing. We are here if you need us.

There is a void in the Episcopal Church Community. Ron has been a strong voice for those who otherwise might not be heard. We are deeply saddened by the passing of our dear friend and priest. His passing is an enormous loss for St. Richard's Lake Arrowhead. He was the embodiment of our core values of love and compassion and always challenged us to do more on behalf of the most vulnerable among us. He will be greatly missed! We will pray for comfort for all those for whom Ron's life was a gift. Peace and love to you Terry.
In sympathy,
Ron and Cindy Parker

We always loved hearing about the amazing places all over the world that u boy's been too and all the laughs and great food. I have many great memories with u and ron but one out of a bunch that makes me laugh is when Ron made us all a great salad and someone said how they love the croutons and wanted to know where he got them , and Ron looked at him and said he just burnt toast in the toaster and broke them up over the salad! Ron and Terry u both have a heart of gold and we miss u Ron hobert. It's always great time's with u, never any bad times. God bless u Terry odie and dunken.
