Just heard about Ron. I’m sorry to hear that. The Bible says 3 score and ten, a few more if we are able. Trust in Him and give Him the Glory. I can remember lots of times at your house on Cedar. Ron Was one of my good friends and as I look back on those times, realize the Lord blessed me with his presence in my life. You have my heartfelt condolences on your loss . There are many who share this with you. May God Bless You in this time of sorrow. We shouldn’t have sorrow because he’s gone...but be grateful because he lived!
