Jane & Family: I am sorry to hear of Ron's passing. He was a great man. I know my parents, Kay & Howard O'Neill shared many memories together. The many road trips with the old cars and to the boat. I know he was not feeling the best when we saw him over Hog Days at the race but it was so good for my parents to see him and I know he was determined to meet up with his other car buddies.

Over the years I would call Ron for ideas for what Dad needed for his old cars, always something. The one thing I remember well was the recommendation for his trunk on the back, still there today.

Will keep you all in my prayers, we know that Ron is at peace and we have an angel in heaven watching over. I have more pictures to share, we have scanned all of Dad's pictures and have them digital. If you want to pass on your email, I will pull out the many photos they have of your journeys ([email protected]).

Love,
Kay & Howard, and family
