    Bev, Trevor and families;
    Ron was such a nice person – I will never forget and have always appreciated the help I received from him when I first moved to Calgary. Though I wasn’t there, one of my favorite family stories is hearing about the time Ron tried to jump across the creek at our farm.
    We are all thinking of you at this sad time.
