I was with Ron for over four hours on Wednesday the 22nd. He was awake and talkative a fair amount of that time. He always loved to reminisce. I listened to Navy stories, hunting tales, his memories of mutual kin long gone... Seeing him a couple of days later (on Friday the 24th) I felt his earthly end was near. I drove away that day with a heavy heart. I'll always hold close to my heart the times we had together.
