Greetings from Cali, Colombia, South America. I grew up next to Ron and Joan in Edgelawn. Have many great memories of his always wanting to tease me and play jokes on me. Miss all of the ole Edgelawn gang and wish that I was there to celebrate his life with all of you. Pray and wonderful, fond thoughts go out to each of you. Jenny Rollins, Rubio
