My name is Micheal Carlton and Ron Hale was and always will be one of my few best friends. Ron was also my best man at my only marriage in the 70's. Ron was one of a kind and a very special person that I already miss and will til the day I die. I also knew his brothers and used to joke to Ron that "The Sacketts" was written about him and his brothers. There are so many stories and tales of our friendship I only wish I could have been there at the end for him like he always was for me. Typed by Linda Carlton Berger
