RIP brother💗 Brad and Derek know that I'm here for you! Although I can't physically be with you today know I'm there in spirit. Make your dad proud🙏🙂 love you both!!

Ron taught me how to shoot pool. Needless to say, I was really good back in the day. He could make unbelievable bank shots! He was a hustler though, you might beat him the first game but he loved the "how about double or nothing" you were screwed then! Many times, when he lived in Kentucky and worked in the coal mines, would we go to a joint (bar) down there I was worried about leaving when he would take someone's whole paycheck! He was good! Will miss you brother, tell mom and dad hi. I will see you on the other side!
