    So sorry to hear of the loss to your family. It has been a long time since I saw Ron or any of you, but think about the old days regularly. We pray that the Lord will be with you during this difficult time.

    In the fall of 1967, I was sitting at a table in the break room of the tech school in Eau Claire, WI when a lad sat down and started a conversation. We continued our conversation for the next 53 years. Unfortunately, we were never able to solve the world’s problems though we debated and tried to. Our last conversation only lasted a minute or two on the Thursday before he died.

    While I was stationed at MacDill AFB and he was stationed in the panhandle he dropped by to introduce us to his future wife Linda. Since then we stayed in touch and had many visits either in the winter in Florida or in the summer in Minnesota. He always made sure to have a supply of walleye on hand for me.

    A few years ago, I had had foot surgery and could not drive. Chris had to be in Illinois with her mother. I figured if I needed to get around town, I could call a taxi. Ron decided to fly down to spend the week with me.

    It is said that a person does not need a lot of friends in life as long as he has a few good friends. Ron was a good friend.

    We will miss him.
