  6. It was 63 years ago that I first met Ron. We hung around together with the “Gang” from church. When I got back from overseas Ron took me in his new convertible with the top down and the heater on to get pizza. I had never heard of pizza before that. Of course we had to go about five miles away to get to a pizza parlor.
    I alspo remember a Labor Day weekend when Ron, Art Puls, and I went to a park for the weekend in his dad’s old truck that he used for deliveries. As we were leaving to come home Ron drove around the same area twice before we finally told him how to get out of the park.

    Such fond memories. Thats what friends are for.

  9. Dear Nadine and all the family ~~ You continue to remain in my thoughts and prayers during these difficult days. Not only am I saddened at the loss of Ron, but also that distance prevents me from being with you. Bill joins me in sending our love and fond wishes for happy memories and better days ahead.
