You will truly be missed ,. Love you y brother from another mother . Quietman

My favorite memory of Ron is when you all came to our camper in Giles County! What a fun day we had floating in the New River! The float was fun, the views were beautiful and memories were made! Rebecca, my friend you are in my heart, my thoughts and my prayers! God Love Your Heart.
