So sorry to hear about Ron's passing. He was a sweet and kind man. Always asked how you were doing and loved to tell you jokes.
You all are in my prayers.

To the family:
You have truly lost a treasure. It was a long time before I got to know Ron, but when I did, I enjoyed every minute that I got to spend in his presence.
I am sure that everyone at Friendship Village will miss him. While he was well,, he took such good care of those that lived there and needed a little help.
My favorite remembrance of him is his shoveling a parking space for me two winters ago when we had the big snow storm. I parked where there was snow and he was pretty upset with me for a while, until I explained that there could be someone who needed that cleared path worse than I did. He forgave me!
My thoughts and prayers go out to each one of you now and in the days to come!
