We will miss Ron Fender very much. We knew him for many years and had alot of good times as Ron was the life of the party. We met Ron from my Uncle Sammy Bailey who is with Ron now, and I am sure they are both very happy and have no worries. We give our condolences to his wife and son. We pray for Ron and his family to be able to move on in life and be happy as Ron would have wanted.
