Ron's passing hurts deeply.  He was a wonderful friend and the best neighbor we could ever ask for.  He was like the big brother we never had.  We're both very grateful for all the assistance he provided when we were away from our home.  Ron was a good man who leaves a great legacy.  Our thoughts and prayers to Sandy and their beautiful family. 

Sincerely,
Dale & Donna

Our condolences to Sandy, Marcia, Cheryl and the family for Ronald's sudden passing. We had such a wonderful visit last summer catching up with family news while in Virginia Beach for Seth's wedding. Our family from Texas called him Ronald. He was our mother's first cousin. Our visits to Virginia were infrequent but always memorable. One of my first memories was of Ronald in the Dairy Barn helping to milk the big cows. I was so scared to be there. In later years I was fascinated with his elaborate electric train set in his room and the walls papered with cowboys and covered wagons. We heard through letters that Ronald had built a boat for the cottage. We thought that was amazing. Then after his move to Virginia Beach, he brought Sandy to the Hilltop in Arlington, when we were there for a visit, and she seemed to fit right in to the front porch chats where family history was reviewed with our Grandfather and Grandmother Lane, Ronald's Aunt Ruth. In later years we would meet our second cousins Tina, Tracie, Daniel and Nathan when Ronald would bring the family to visit. when we were in Arlington.
