  2. My heart is broken I’m going to forever miss you!! Ron you were a very kind hearted, hard working, inspiring person, who always made me laugh. I’m not only going to miss your contagious smile, but all our talks on gardening, camping trips, to all the amazing and hilarious stories over the years.
    May you rest in peace my friend.
    Till we meet again. Love you, Anita
