Robin, Jennifer, Ryan and James

We are so sad to learn of Ron's passing. We will miss his smiling face and his friendly conversation at Rome's and even before that at Beaver gas. We remember first meeting Ron at the hockey rink and the fun we had with Ron at the rink and on the hockey road trips. What a great guy. Our condolences, thoughts and prayers to all of you. May your memories comfort and help sustain you at this most difficult time.
