So sorry to hear about our old friend Ron. We were close when our kids were little, but then life took us our separate ways. He was a very honest, calm, and kind man - easy to be around. His old friend Lynn will have a Pabst waiting up there for him. May the Good Lord especially bless all who are left here, missing him so much.
