  8. Karen: After reading about Ron’s death, I am sorry I didn’t keep in closer touch with Ron and with you, especially during his recent illness. My sincere Condolences to you at this sad time. I very first knew Ron in the McLauchlan family home, when he was still in school. I met with you and Ron at the funerals of Laura McLauchlan, and again for Betty, then Bill Stephenson. May you continue to have the support of your family and friends. Jean
