I'm sorry to hear of Ron's passing. We were once good friends. He was funny, witty and talented. And, boy, could he cook! His meals were the best! We had many fun times together. Roger, thanks for reaching out to me. To Ron's family: you're in my thoughts.

Roger - So sorry to hear of your loss - sending my thoughts and prayers to you and your family. Take care and try to recall all the happy fun times you and Ron had together with your 4 legged babies. Maya Angelou said "Our stories come from our lives and from the playwright's pen, the mind of the actor, the roles we create, the artistry of life itself and the quest for peace." You my friend are now the author of Ron's life to remember his artistry and create his story in happy memories that will live in the hearts of you and the people he loved. - Take time and take care of yourself - Bob
