Ron was indeed a very special person who thought well and hard before he spoke. He only spoke when he had something to say. His soft voice demanded attention and respect. I am extremely grateful that by an act of fate our paths crossed for a few moments over a long span of years. Those moments I will treasure for as long as I live.
Until we meet again, I humbly bid my friend Ron farewell.

Sincere condolences to his dear family.
