I met Ron in about ‘77, we have been friends off and on since. We shared life.
I remember he and Lorena used to invite me for meals to share with them and their kids, Jeremy and Loren(great kids).
They always made me feel like family. Later on after Ron retired I would catch him out front cleaning equipment and stop and visit.
Never expected Ron to get involved as a State Representative. I just have to say that Ron was a good man and am proud to say that he was my friend. My sincere condolences.

I had the great privilege of serving with Ron in the Kansas House of Representatives. He was a great guy who served his constituents first while being devoted to God, his family, country and the State of Kansas.

You shared with me a visit/vision you had experienced of heaven. In 2 days you got to know me, and I you, more profoundly. June 25th our last time together. You told me what was coming. You told me you had not seen him (Jesus) yet, it would be soon. I asked him if he was OK with that. He said yes. He asked me to come close. He told me he loved me and kissed me. I in turn did the same.
"Tatanka" & I miss you.
