I was so very sad to hear of the passing of Ron. It immediately brought to my memory the 1955 Chevrolet BelAir Ron bought shortly after they moved into the first home in Lakota. It was his pride and joy at that time . Also the family gatherings we had at Marion and Rons home. They were always filled with fun and playing games. Although Cynde and I can not be there to attend the funeral my prayers and thoughts go out to Marion and Kim and the remainder of the family during this time. May God bless you all and keep you safe.
Thoughts and prayers Marian and family. Always a kind word when we saw him.
My sympathies to Marian and the family of Ron,he will be missed 🙏
so sorry for your loss--great memories--faithful member of St Paul's--prayers for peace at this time
