  2. Nancy I remember when you and I first met it was such a small world that we became such good friends and then find out that Ron was friends with my parents. That made it even better. Ron was such a fun loving happy funny guy that it was hard not to smile when he was around. He is surely going to be missed and my heart and prayers are with you during this time. I remember all the camping trips that we all went on and Ron led everyone in the campside singing and if you didnt sing he would hit you with his tennis racket guitar. He sure did play a mean guitar . I remember all the town hall parties at the Bakers house by the pool and all the little games he would play with all the kids. He was a great person and my thoughts are with you always .I am so glad that we all got to see you both last year at mom and dads house in Mesa. that was such a treat. If you ever need anything please let me know. God Bless
    Love Dawn
