Bobbi, I am so sorry for you and your family's loss. Although I did not know Ron and based on the stories you shared, he was a wonderful man, husband, and father. My heart is with you all during this difficult time. Judy Mc

"Like a shadow in the moonlight
Like the whisper of the seas
Like the echoes of a melody
Just beyond our reach
In the shadow of our sorrow
Past the whisper of goodbye
Love shines through eternity
A heartbeat from our eye.
