I'm going to miss my brother Ron. It's still difficult to comprehend he's not here. Those who knew my brother just figured he'd always be around. Talking about him in the past tense still doesn't seem real. He still had more to offer.
But he did lead a full life. Ron was an accomplished bassist playing and touring with many bands since the late 1960s. He was still a member of a band at the time he left us. Ron was also a professional wrestling referee who worked for the WWE as well as many other independent organizations. He was politically active and traveled the country many times. Family reunions during the holidays with my brother Ron were never boring that's for sure. It won't be the same. I miss him already. He was a force of nature. Take care Ronnie and I'll see you again sometime down the road. You led a good life.
