"Patty, Just heard about Ron. I?m sorry to hear that. The Bible says 3 score and ten, a few more if we are able. Trust in Him and give Him the Glory. I can remember lots of times at your house on Cedar. Ron Was one of my good friends and as I look back on those times, realize the Lord blessed me with his presence in my life. You have my heartfelt condolences on your loss . There are many who share this with you. May God Bless You in this time of sorrow. We shouldn?t have sorrow because he?s gone...but be grateful because he lived! Gene ?Cork? Battey"
