Ron was My Friend : We shared the memory of Several Golf League Championships together. For 20 years Ron my Twin Brother and Others golfed together every weekend sometimes more. Ron was a very soft spoken quiet guy. I don't remember a harsh word ever spoken between us. We hadn't golfed this past season as I was unable to. I was looking forward to playing the next season and was shocked to hear he'd passed . What more can I say . Ron was My Golf Partner and Friend. I will miss him. Someday I'm sure I'll see him again.

My thoughts and prayers are with you Sue. When something like this happens we can take comfort in knowing Ron is with The Lord Jesus :

John 11:25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he is dead, yet shall he live:

Ron has just passed into the next life. So I have no doubt we will soon see him again. God Bless You.

Ron has left us all far too early. There is now a significant empty spot in our lives, but he remains and resides closely in the midst of the memories we cherish most in our hearts. Ron's place there is secure for we will not forget him. His place there will always keep him with us and will sweetly remind us of how our lives benefited from his.
I will always remember Ron for his goodness, kindness, gentleness, and playful humor. Perhaps most of all, though I will remember him and admire him for his steadfast character. When I think of him in the days ahead, I will do so with a smile and with a special thanks to the Lord for the blessing of such a friend.

With Loving Respects to Ron's wife, Sue, and family,
Chuck & Nilsa Galy
