I remember not so long ago when there was a posting of the family photo & I said my name should have Handley in it, as I was so lovingly welcomed back on Berwyn. Ron joked that he was named after me.
Deb & family, I'm so very sorry. Ron was such a good, good man taken way too soon. The world will never again be such a cool place to be. I love you all.

Our love and prayers are with you Debbi and your whole family. So many of the pictures I took last winter show Ron helping in all of the activities or entertaining everyone with his sense of humor. I know he will be missed by everyone who knew him. Wish I were closer to give you a hug.
