Dear Wilma, On May 23rd, there was a lineup of cars on Collins Road in tribute to Ron. That says it all! Nashville will never be the same. Wilma, you and Ron are special people, so sorry for your loss. Youre the best neighbors anyone could ask for. Ron will be greatly missed. We loved his dry sense of humor.

What a guy... Ronnie always had a smile on his face and something other than his arm up his sleeve. I will miss our chats, where we loved to bust on each other. Wilma, Ed and family, you are in my thoughts and prayers as he has headed on to his next journey, free from pain, and will be united with his beloved Susie. Hugs to you all....

We are so sad to hear that Ron has left us. We have many fond memories of him and Wilma when they ran the Shanty restaurant in Amber and many other visits we've had over the years. He was a master woodworker and an all around wonderful person. You are all in our prayers and may you find comfort in great memories of time spent together.
