Bette and family,
So sorry for your loss. We have such good memories of Ron and all of the rest of you; treasuring each and every one of them. The times we were in Milwaukee, Birnamwood/Hatley, Minnesota and Arkansas together. I think we can each pick one of those and remember. One of the best for me was the 11 of us going to northeastern Minnesota camping, sleeping in tents, food in a cooler and we managed for3 days. I hope that you as a family have shared your memories with each other. Ron would not care for you to be sad all of the time. Ron, rest in Peace; your work on earth is done. Love to each of you, Leon and Carol Kaminski
He was an amazing man and grandpa I'm gonna miss going fishing with him and playing cards your in a better place now grandpa
