I only knew Ron through his lovely wife, Pat. †Pat and I met on-line back in 2009 and we have chatted ever since. †I have always felt I knew Ron because Pat would always talk so lovingly about her husband. †Genuine sorrow for the loss of this man is being felt across the miles and prayers for strength and peace are being continually said for Pat and her family. †Mr. Walker, rest in peace - in the loving arms of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

So sorry for your loss. Ron was a real trouper. He fought till The Lord said " it's ok Ron, you've done your very best. Now it's time for you to rest, my friend". God bless you all.

Wish I could be there in person, but be assured that I am with you all in spirit!  Long distant hugs to family and the many friends that Ron's life has touched and obviously made better from the stories that I have been hearing and reading about G'Pa Ron.  A very special hug for G'Ma Pat, and Joanie/Amber/Betsy/Jonathon too!  Love all y'all! :-)  jeff

Dear Pat and Family:

Mom and I are saddened by your loss.  You took such good care of "Reno" and made so many memories during your years together. He was a wonderful person and he will be missed by many, especially by all of his family.  I'm so happy he got to attend our Class Reunion this past September among other things he was able to do.  God Bless you and Keep you in His Care!  You will find much peace and comfort through your Church Family and your relationship with Jesus!
