    My deepest sympathy to you Shirley, and your family. Though I have not seen Ron recently, I was very saddened by his passing. Ron was a lovely man and will be missed.

  2. I have such amazingly wonderful memories growing up with Sarah and Katie as we ran around their house and Ron would be chasing us with “the Claw.” So Many Christmases, roller skating in the basement, cuddling kittens tucked away in the hallway closet, picnics at Bragg creek, Bowness Stampede breakfasts, watching him build his trains downstairs and being “couch commando” upstairs! I will miss so many things about Ron but his sense of humour will always make me smile. Thank you for all the loving warm memories. I will miss you. Love Chelsea oxoxo

  3. Ahh, Shirley and family, and Cam and family. So very sudden and so very very sad. Ron was such a great guy and a wonderful cousin. Our hearts ache for you and we hope your loving memories of him help to make this sorrowful time pass just a wee bit easier.

    Much love to you all, Lorna and Steve
