    I’m very sorry to hear this sad news. Ron and I were best friends in high school, virtually inseparable. The great memories I have of him, his parents and mutual friends will remain with me as long as I live. He was a genuine, down to earth individual and his loyalty, integrity, discretion, morals and character were beyond reproach. My sincerest sympathy to Sandy and his entire family. Rest in peace, old friend.
