    We are so grateful that we had a chance recently to spend a little time with Uncle Ron. Those hours spent with the two of you are fresh in our minds and will be cherished forever along with the other many loving memories we have of him. We know words alone cannot heal the pain when a loved one leaves us, that is something only time can do. Please take comfort knowing he was loved by all and his suffering has come to an end.

    Jan, please accept my sincere condolence of the passing of your beloved husband and mate Ron. I’ve only know Ron for the past 15 yrs. but to know a man of courage and honesty like I knew him – 15 yrs. was like a life time. I will miss him here at Rhum Cove, but will never forget his wonderful outlook on life and his love for you & his family.

  8. One of my favourite memories was when my father, brother and I drove a Lincoln from Brantford to Calgary in the winter of 1975. I was behind the wheel just short of our destination when I hit a transport truck that caused some damage to the front end. I was devastated and concerned how my Uncle Ron would react. He had a qiuick look at the car and never questioned how or why it happened. He was just happy to see us because that it was really mattered. God bless you and the family.
