I’ve only known Ron a short time. We met and played music together. He always had a quick smile and an easy laugh. He was usually the tallest in the group and I was usually the shortest. That often positioned his banjo right in my ear. It also gave that Mutt and Jeff look to our end of the stage. I’m grateful for the time he took to show me tunes. We have missed him around local jams and now we’ll miss him even more.
