    Ron and I go way back. He talked all the time about his daughter Mindy and we compared notes about Grand Ledge. He really got a kick out of my twin boys and my daughter when they were little and we would get together and take them to the movies. We worked together for awhile at the Rusty Nail and got a lot of laughs over things we did. He loved that and I will miss him dearly.

    Ron was a wonderful Man, I had not seen him in many years, but he always had a smile and could not be a nicer person. He will be missed by all.
