  2. CandleImageRon,
    You were truly a great man. You will be missed by many. Thank you for being a wonderful Grandfather to Nikki and I as well as a wonderful Great Grandfather to her children. Although our time together was brief, just know you touched my heart in that small amount of time. I take great pride in calling you family.

    To his family,
    Please accept my deepest condolences. I know this last year or so has not been easy on any of you. Ron was truly a great man and one of a kind. Please take solace in knowing he’s in a better place. I know both him and Karen are looking down and watching over you all. Please let me know if there’s anything I can do for you in this time of sorrow. You are in my thoughts and prayers 🙏
