Not sure what to say?

My name is Kirby Alary. I'm so sad to hear of Ron's passing. My heart and prayers go to Marsha and the entire family. I had no idea. I had been trying to contact Marsha on her birthday last June as I do every year, but the phone number was no longer in service. After looking online for a possible connection, I found Ron's name. I met the Verna family in 1985. Ron was a wonderful man. He was warm and welcoming. He had a quiet charm. I wish I had been able to see him and Marsha in recent years....

Knew Ron from Glendale High School. He was a year ahead of me, but we were friends for years. Kind of lost when he and Marsha moved to Indio. Coached Babe Ruth baseball in La Crescenta together as both his son Ken, and my son Randy were good buddies, and still are. Never heard a harsh word from Ron, but I'm sure he wouldn't say the same of me he was still able. You just couldn't not like the guy, he was as someone wrote a sweet, gentle man. Can still see his smile in my mind. God bless his...

We will miss Uncle Ron.... We are so glad to have been able to go to his 80th birthday party. I’ll miss seeing him practice his bowling move.
Love to you all!!!!!
