Aunt Donna and family,
So glad we got to visit not too long ago. I will hold the memories of that day and memories from the past in my heart.
Uncle Ron is not in pain any longer. He’s with our loving Lord.
May your wonderful memories sustain you through the days ahead.
Keeping you in prayer.

We are very sorry to hear of your loss. While we did not see Ron much it was always a pleasure. Watched all his You-Tube episodes, wish I would have know about them earlier. He was quite a craftsman.

Gary and Jane Budman
