    It is with great sadness that I say goodbye to you. The indescribable pain and the emptiness in my soul is overwhelming. I’m numb and completely heartbroken. My only comfort is knowing that we left no words unspoken and knew that the day would come when you didn’t need me anymore and we would have to say goodbye…a painful goodbye as I am now left to live the remainder of my years only with the memory of you. Although caring for you in your final years was tough, the pain of watching you suffer was even tougher! My tears are tears of sadness and joy; sadness over losing you but joy in knowing that you no longer suffer. I find comfort in knowing that you are free from a disease, a disease that robbed you of your golden years. I wouldn’t trade the obstacles we faced together for anything, as it taught me many life lessons along the way and has made me a better person.
    I love you Daddy and I will miss you every day for the rest of my life. If it wasn’t for you I wouldn’t be the person I am today…for that I thank you. More importantly, thank you for loving me unconditionally, giving me the best childhood, and for helping me and supporting me in my times of tragedy and sharing in my victories.
    May you now rest in eternal peace.
    Love your only daughter,
    Carrie Lynn

    Grandpa Ron,
    Even though we didnt know each other very well I see how much joy you have brought to my mom. You must have been a wonderful man if you raised a woman so kind, compassionate,and loving. The holidays were usually the time we spent together. The whole family at that smorgasbord downtown was my favorite time of year as a child. I will forever have love and respect for you because you were family. Im so relieved you no longer have to struggle with that debilitating disease and can forever rest. I love you. Please help guide my mom out of this grief and help her to realize you are now her guardian angel. XOXO

    Ron, you will surely be missed, its sad that life has diseases, this disease took you away a few years ago, I know youre in a better spot now without all the pain and suffering. A couple of fun memories I have of you is when you tied Marmadukes leash to Paul and then walked away quietly about 50 feet and then turned around and told Marmaduke to come, and the vision that sticks in my head one that wrote tightened up was Paul about 3 feet in the air horizontal and then Marmaduke drug him toward you, as Pauls brother that was funny to me but he didnt seem to find the humor in all of it, Im just glad that you chose him and not me, LOL. And of course one other memory was the time that all you adults got together and created your famous treasure map to keep all of us bored kids busy up at wilderness State Park, you guys managed to keep us all busy for at least A day or two to the point where the hole was so big that the park rangers had to put a stop to it, you were always good for a laugh and your infectious energy was always fun to be around, you will be missed.

    Im so sorry to hear about your Dad Carrie & Dirk. My heart goes out to your families. I am honored that I was lucky enough to know him growing up and knowing that he was a best friend to my Dad. We had so many weekends of great laughs and fun all together. Those memories I will cherish my entire life. RIP Ron
