Lois and family,
I am so saddened to learn of Ron's passing. He was such a great guy to talk to. His stories and jokes were the best! He will be missed by many as he touched so many people throughout his life. I will remember his unwavering love of you, Lois and how well you two interacted together. Both always smiling and laughing! Now he is with God, bending his ear, telling some inappropriate joke! I am glad to have enjoyed his company.......I will miss him. God bless you all.
