I am so sorry to hear of Ron's death. I am secretary/manager of the Burr Oak Cemetery and worked with Ron for many years. He was always so pleasant and took such good care of our cemetery grounds. He will be missed by your family and many people in the area. I am sorry I didn't hear of this I would have attended the visitation or funeral.
