    Even though I haven’t seen Uncle Ron in a while, I am saddened by the fact that he is gone. We shared a Birthday, and he gave me my first ball glove when he and my father tought me how to play baseball-at a very young age. My condolences to Aunt Vi and the girls.

    I am sorry to hear of the passing of Ron. I worked with him and played basketball and softball with him in the 1950’s at General Dynamics. He was a Wonderful FRIEND to be with! DICK PIERCE

    To My Dear Sister Vi: Ron was very special to Bruce and I, and with you both we shared so many happy times together. To me, Ron was the brother I never had. Words cannot ease the feelings of sorrow one has when losing a loved one. My blessings go to you Vi, and my lovely neices Pat, Penny and Kathy. May God’s peace and comfort be with you at this time of sorrow. Love, Marion
