Dear Diane and Family,
Anne and I have had the good luck and good fortune to have known what a great man Ron was. I will miss those spontaneous long distance phone calls that Ron and I had even in the midst of his busiest times. He always made time for us to talk and visit, and I will always truly value our life-long friendship. It was a true pleasure and honour to know Ron, and he will be sadly missed. With love from your friends in Canada,
