I met Ron when I was in junior high at Simpson Elementary school. I remember many nights of talking on the phone for hours. Watching Tiny Toons Adventures and just being.. best friends. We lived on opposite ends of Glenrosa.. he was on the east side of 23rd ave and I was on the west. We would stand out in the middle of the street and wave at each other all the way across. I still have letters he wrote me from 1991. We grew up together. Went to school, met our spouses, had our families. We lost contact for several years. There was a 12 year gap when we didn't see each other but I always hoped we would again. I saw him again when he was in Thunderbird. I remember walking into the room and him just taking my hand. It was like no time passed. I would visit him at night when work was slow for me and he was awake or in the morinings before I left. I will always cherish those times I was so lucky to have again. Ron is someone I will always cherish. He will have the space in my heart that has always been his. I hope one day I will see him again and he will reach out his hand and it will be like no time has passed.

Marney.. I am so sorry for the loss of your lifetime love. I remember when Ron was falling in love with you. I love that he got to spend his life with you. I am so so happy you will always have a huge piece of him with you always, not just in your heart but in Lilly and Drake. Ron was so lucky to be so loved by everyone but really, everyone who was fortunate enough to be loved by Ron has received one of lifes greatest gifts. Real love, real friendship and true loyalty. Until we meet again Ron.. with all my love
