I remember days of past, warmly spent in your company here at Village of the Pines, and at/in your other homes. The love for each other, and your family was a warm attraction and welcome. Thank you for the honour of having you in my circle of friendship. Ron - your smile and sense of humour were magic. I recall warmly your laughter. You both as a couple were special. With heartfelt condolences ... and love to you Arlene! June S Morrison (Pickering)

God will definitely show you the way to smiling again. I know this experience will change you forever. Just remember all the good times you shared with your Father/Grandfather and all the love he gave you throughout the years. He is not gone. He will live in your hearts forever. Remembrance Sunday will be more poignant today in memory of your Hero.
