    I am most grateful for having the privilege to have known Ron. An inspiration, a good friend. May he now, after this life, which in retrospect we know in wisdom, is brief, be returned to the care and love of God

    For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.
    So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.

    2 Corinthians 4:17-18
