Ronnie,
I just learned from Louise about Ron's passing. We have not kept in touch in years, but I only have the fondest of memories particularly when we shared the condo when first coming to Blue Bell. I looked at the photo book and could see so much happiness when you two were together.
I would love to hear from you some time. If you contact Louise at Blue Bell she knows how to reach me.
I am so sad for you.
Love,
Hildy

Dear Ronnie:
I can't say enough about Ron, how much I loved him since he was a baby and what a terrific human being. I have lots of memories which will help me as time goes by. He loved and was loved and we are all very lucky to share some of his life with him & you. His parents would have been proud of him & his goodness towards others. He was a fighter to the end. Love you

The slideshow says it all - Ron gave AND got lots of love. We had long admired his zest for life and are so grateful to be counted among his many friends.

With love and prayers,

Andrea and Chris

I was so saddened to hear about Ron´s passing. Even though we haven´t seen each other for many years, I have kept fond memories of Ron as a loving person who enjoyed life. When I watch the beautiful photo gallery, I can see he didn´t change. My sympathies to the whole family - I know you meant so much to each other.
