Thanking God for the gift of such a special friendship for almost 50 years. There will forever be a special spot in my heart of faith, fun, joy and laughter you shared dear Ron. These wonderful memories will never fade. I can imagine you now with the angels and saints and family and friends gone before you continuing your hilarious stories and sharing your unending love. Jesus called such a special soul on such a Special Day. Rest in peace my dear friend.

My deepest sympathy to you Donna, Nancy, Tom, David and all Ron’s family. Sincerely, Cathy Glynn-Milley

Cousin Ronnie was one of a kind. He was always so welcoming and loved to have people around. I had told Ronnie once while he was visiting me in Dipper Harbour how it was sad that we had so few pictures of our childhood years. Much to my surprise in the mail arrived a coloured photo of my mom, dad and me plus my two brothers . He was so thoughtful . The photo meant so much to me and I get to enjoy it on our mantel when we are home. Our thoughts and prayers are with family and friends who are together to say their goodbyes today to a special person and to celebrate his life . You will be missed. RIP our dear Ronnie.

Ron was the kindest person who always welcomed persons from every circle to his happy gatherings! He’d help those less fortunate. Always with a smile and great sense of humor, he will be sorely missed. We knew Ron from his younger days in Lawrence, MA, later in CA, and kept in touch while he resided in Florida!

With sympathy and prayers,

Maureen Glynn Chadwick & Family
