David and family, so sorry to hear of Ron’s passing, now he and my friend Gerri are together.
They both were wonderful friends of mine and I will forever remember our times together at Willard High School, where we all graduated in 1962.
You and your brother were always class cut-ups and of course Gerri and I were good students and didn’t talk much, ha, ha…
You and I have lots of good memories of them both and that’s what I will cherish most…
God bless and be with you and all the family and friends.
