Cindy, I'm so sorry. Ron was a sweet, gentle man and I know the loss for you and Sara is so great. All of you have been through so much already but you are strong and he is still with you. Bobby and I are thinking of you all.

Dear Cindy,

I am so sorry to hear about Ron's passing. Whenever I think of Ron I always think of Ron's wonderful smile, his quiet strength, his beautiful white hair, and most of all his love for you. I hope you will get some comfort and knowing you have many friends who are sending prayers and hugs!
God Bless

Cindy, Debbie and I both want to tell you how sorry we are for your loss of Ron, just remember he is now in the Lord's place playing beautiful music. Debbie is presently out of town in Texas helping her sister get back on their feet after hurricane Harvey, so will not be able to attend the funeral Saturday. We will be making a donation to the Chesapeake animal society in Ron's name. Sincerely Bob

Cindy, I am so sorry for your loss. I guess my dad is the last surviving Swamp Boy. Please don't hesitate to reach out if there is anything I can do or just be a shoulder to lean on as I have experienced this same sadness. Connie O'Malley
