Peggy - My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family. Ron will certainly be missed by all who loved him. He was truly one of the good guys.

Dear Peggy and Family,
I have many happy memories of our youthful days at NSCS, and lots of laughs from being at the "late table" at the 50th reunion (the staff sent us home!).
Ron had been in my prayers since I first heard of his illness. In the Catholic tradition, I continue to pray for his soul and for blessings on you and your family at this difficult time.

To Peggy and Sons
Wish you all the best and just remember what a fun loving Husband and Father Ron was. I looked forward to his phone calls. He was always excited about life and made you feel important and happy when he called. I will miss him greatly.
Much love to you all at this time.

Even though he's gone
his memory still remains in our hearts.
His smile and face will never fade.
We think of him as we go on each day.
The good times we remember
and the days spent together
will be in our memories forever.
He's in a better place.
His heart was right with God.
Ron, we love you
and we miss you
but we know you're much happier.

You will continue to be in our thoughts and prayers. I know that this is not what you wanted or planned for. I want you to know that Ronnie and his journey and his faith through this journey touched many, many lives. God has used the two of you in mighty ways.
May you continue to look to the Lord for your strength and comfort. He is there for you as are many of your family and friends.
In His service,
Diane Rapp (Lois Walker's daughter)

Others call you Ron - I've always known you as Ronnie. I fondly remember playing together as young children - having parades on the 4th of July, putting on talent shows with the other neighborhood kids in our garage. Our families getting together on New Years Eve, the Shannon and Bader kids playing kick the can or hide and seek - and sledding in the winter-time. We just had fun. I remember us walking together to the corner to catch

I always enjoyed talking to you as many will also reveal. You always listened and that was enough for me. I remember you coming to our house when it was Halloween and dressed like a witch demanded a drink, unfortunately we were all out of alcohol so you had to move on but not before a good honest laugh was had by all. Thank you Ron for sharing you and your family with me when i was first married and
