    I'm so sorry to hear this! I loved reading Rons posts. Always came across as a good man. Although I never met him and only know of him through his posts here, his passing has hit me hard.
    Rest in peace, RonG. My thoughts and heartfelt prayers to his family. God bless.

    I'm sorry to hear of his passing.

    RonG was one of the names I would look for to read if he posted, as he was one that passed on good experience for the rest of us to learn from.

    May he rest in peace.

    As many have stated already, I really enjoyed his posts. Kinda funny how you can feel like you know somebody that you have never actually met. I felt like I knew him and, will miss him. Condolences to his family.

    Wow, I log in for the first time in a few months and this is the first thing I see. When I joined Ron was one of the first to give me a welcome. Haven't been on here much the last few years but come to find out he used to work for a mutual friend some years ago, so we emailed back and forth and I got them in touch again. I was hoping to get them together to shoot the breeze and have a coffee together but I guess that will have to wait til we're at the sandpit in the sky.

    Thanks for the knowledge and all else, Ron! You will be missed!

    Well I had not logged on in a while as stretch and sorry to hear of his passing. It is a journey we each much take and we each have the opportunity to prepare for it. It sure sounds like he was a very fine gentleman and to his family sorry for the void left but remember we miss as we loved and were loved. Praying for his family. You will touch the oddest things that will bring the tears back and yet should also bring the joy. May God Bless you.
