Susan
Thank you for sharing Ron last Tuesday. We laughed, I cried. We prayed we talked about Heaven and he said he would tell my Susan I missed her and loved her. He told me he had no idea how the transition worked but he couldn’t wait to find out. To see Jesus and be with Him. Now he is there

Ron has been a blessing to me. I look forward to seeing him again when I am finally home.

Peace to the memory of this Faitful servant of our God

Dear Susan,

My heart is breaking because I know how much you two love each other and how much you treasured each other's company. I remember being so moved by Ron's messages that I shed tears during nearly every sermon he gave. He once asked me why and I could not explain it. Ron was so genuine, so warm, so generous, so caring. He took such a personal interest in the needs and pains and joys of his congregation (and anyone else God put in his path). I felt such a deep (and selfish) loss when you two left Alaska, and remember writing "just like Ron Mancini" under our church committee's questionnaire asking for suggestions on the qualities we wanted in a new pastor. I still see his smile, his grin, his stance, his intense interest. It was an honor to know him and you. My prayers surround you now as you learn to navigate without your husband's physical presence - but with his spiritual presence watching over you at all times until you are together again. God bless you deeply, and the children (especially Lisa, whom I got to know better than your other children), and the grandchildren. Thank you, Ron, for a job so well done by a good and faithful servant of our mighty and gracious Heavenly Father.

Dearest Sue , Lisa, Michael, Kim and Amy,
There are so many memories for the short time I spent at Lily Lake Covenant Church before your move to Minnesota. The most meaningful one for me was June 15, 1974, the day Ron stood up after Angela Amici kept me in tears with the beautiful songs about the Lord. Ron said he thought there were some in the congregation who would like to receive the Lord and would they please sit down. Well, I did, and my life has not been the same since that day. Ron helped change the lives of so many, and we had so many reasons to celebrate as a congregation. I can just see the celebrations in Heaven now...his parents, Inar, Helen, Eunice, Mose, Sunday school teachers and many more whose names I cannot remember but whose faces are familiar. Wednesday nights for Bible study opened my eyes and heart, taught me to pray and seek the Lord. I will never forget you, Sue, and Ron walking down the center isle after church greeting everyone after Sunday morning services. There were many fun times, too. May we all cherish these memories and be comforted by the Lord with His peace and assurance until we meet again in at the reunion in Heaven! Love to you all, Nancy
