Ron always welcomed Terri and me into the conversations and brought me back to my roots! He and Rosemarie have always been an inspiration for me. Thank you, Ron, for that inspiration, the gift of an awesome son and daughter-in-law, daughters doing son-in-law and your influences on your grandkids and all youve met. Im a fortunate man because of it. Well done!
