My dear Uncle Ron, I can't believe you are now with Aunt Debbie, Uncle Roy, Grandpa B and so many others that we love and miss - how we wish you were still here with us...I have so many wonderful, memories that include you.
I am blessed to have had you in my life. I am so glad you got to spend some time with my little guy: he knew you were someone special from the get go (I remember him going right to you at the steak dinner, it was so cute to see him laughing and giggling in your arms; a memory I will cherish always).
I want to thank everyone who left comments about my Uncle Ron. You are all so right, he was a wonderful man who would and did do anything he could to help others. Each of us is blessed to have had him in our lives. You will be forever missed but never forgotten.
