Not sure what to say?

I was just thinking of Ron and had tried to call him with no luck a few months past. On a whim, I goggled his name and am very sad to hear of this loss. I had met Ron on a flight to Miami many years ago. He quickly became a friend, a mentor and father figure. This man always showed compassion and had great advice at his fingertips. His words of wisdom encouraged a change in my career path and has changed my life forever. My condolences and prayers.

Dee, although I did not know your very father well, what I did know was that he was very special and very unique.

And that is a great compliment. I understand he fought his disease like he lived his life, never accepting "no or nothing can be done" as the answer. I am certain he will be immensely missed by you,...

Dear Elaine,
My deep condolences to you and your family.
Ron will always be in our hearts!
