    I am sorry to hear of Ron’s passing. When l last saw Ron at the class reunion, he still was so friendly, and had a way of greeting friends from long ago to make them feel special. Ron was a people person who seemed to love the interactions with friends old and new. He spoke so thankfully of the loving care that Georgeina gave him when he was so very ill…..Good By Ron, your old high school friends will miss your greetings that made them feel important..Blessings for all of his family.

  2. So sorry to hear about Ron. We know how hard it was for you as we also took care of Joni’s father. Our prayers are with you and your family. I have some great memories of you guys at Stoneys for Xmas party and at Chicago credit union convention.
    Gary and Joni Walmsley.
