I had the privilege of meeting my cousin, Ron, staying with Connie and meeting Deb a few years ago. How I treasure those memories.
When I walked into his room...his first words were "Wow, you look just like your Mother" and he gave me the biggest hug. It was like we had always known each other. I wish we had met years ago. Well, actually I guess we did, but my family left W Va when I was very young.
I'm so thankful for the "reunion time" we had and I even got to see "Elvis" in the nursing home while there.
Another Angel is in heaven keeping the rest of the family company. What a reunion that must be.
I'm not saying goodbye, but "until we meet again,
Love you Cousin Ron".

Ron was one of the most amazing men I’ve ever known. We shared a lot of laughs and cries also together. He brought light and encouraging words when he knew my heart was heavy and always made me smile when I didn’t feel like it. I always tried doing the same for him. He reminded me so much of my father with his jokes and wise cracks. I’ll never forget him, I always seem to think about him everyday and I know I will continue to do so probably until my end of the road. I love you Ron and I hope at the end of my days you will be there waiting for me with that unforgettable smile . I love you and always will. Rip ♥️

I am going to miss Ron so much. We had wonderful visits during his time at Genesis. He always had interesting stories to tell, and he was so beloved by the staff at his nursing home. He was a really great friend and I feel so fortunate that I was able to get to know him and spend time with him.
He is someone I will remember always. The last thing he said to me was, " You never know at my age how long you will be around, so I just want you to know that I love you and thank you for watching out for Connie." I had planned to see him more times after that hospital trip, but the coronavirus took that away from me. I hate that virus for making him die alone without his family. Rest in Peace Ron. You'll forever be in my memory. Barb Adams

Uncle Ron,
I will miss you for your Smile And I will miss you for your sense of humor, I will miss your stories about your dog's who you loved so much. I will miss bringing you peppermints, And Wendy's frostys. I will miss your stories of serving your country and how proud you were of that. And the stories you told me if Aunt Connie, and of your girls, And your Grandkids, And of Grandma and Grandpa Robey, And my mom and your Sister Donna. And Your sister And my Aunt Judy. And of All of the family who came to visit you. But my best memories of you were your wonderful soup beans And cornbread that you would make when I would come to stay. I remember how special that cross Necklace was to you that Aunt Judy gave you.
But most of all was you being so excited to tell Jack And I that your friend who you used to work with Dave Cumpston had been by to visit you and you had given your life to God
And how much you wish you would have done it a long time ago. And Jack And I both told you how happy we were that you did that and that it didn't matter . That what really matter the most is that you did it. And you said (You Know) That Dave is a good man. And you had the biggest smile on your face. RIP. Uncle Ron .. You Will Be Missed. Love you.

I work for SJAS and transported Ron to and from his doctor appointments. We grew a bond and he was like a grandpa to me. He was one of the sweetest souls I ever met. He always knew how to make me smile even on my bad days. Words can describe how much I’m gonna miss his sweet face❤️ He will forever hold a place in my heart.
