      Condolences to Ron’s family and friends. We didn’t know Ron personally but heard so much about him from our future son in law Jeremy. I know Uncle Ron and Aunt Cindy play active roles in Danielle and Jeremy’s lives and you both have had a positive impact to Danielle and Jeremy. And for that we thank you! May Ron Rest In Peace until you all meet again.

      God bless,
      Don and Darcy Fitzgerald
