CandleSo sorry to hear of Ron's passing. He and I were in the same homeroom through out High School. He was always upbeat with a great sense of humor. He loved to kid around which made our days so much fun. I will miss him and his great smile. I am sure he left you with many wonderful memories.
My sympathy and heartfelt condolences to you.
