I am so shocked and saddened by this news, Ron was such a dear and wonderful friend. I did not see him as often as I would have liked to. He always sent me a birthday card every year without fail. I will miss his laughter and sense of humor. He will be deeply missed by so many. Rest in peace my dear friend.
