To Carol, Theresa, and family,
I couldn't be more sorry to hear about Ron's passing. My thoughts have been with you all since I heard the news. Your family was such a part of my growing up years. I remember Ron as someone that joked with me, but always with a more serious exterior. I can still see his expression, and smile. He was always very nice to me, as your whole family was! I remember the hours of card playing, and snacks galore, and me begging my parents to take me home, because it was now reaching morning hours haha! You all had so much fun! I haven't seen much of Ron since I moved out west, but I already miss the idea of not seeing him when I visit! I am so so sorry! I love you all, and If you need anything, I am here always! love always, Lauryne
