Ron was my Dad. It was so reassuring knowing he was in my life, and so unsettling to accept he no longer is. So many things to say, impossible to say enough. Cherished hearing Dad’s stories, the details on his latest book, the article he read in the paper that day that really got to him, his thoughts on any subject, his “air conducting” while listening to the Boston Pops on July 4th, his love of music, his appreciation of museams and history and science, his love of deep red wines with lots of tannins, his love of pie, his ability to build things instead of buy them such as our totally cool childhood desks, his being there to answer all our tech questions and car questions, his love of the challenge of fixing things, most recently of a record player he got from Mary and Joe Jagiello, in hopes of playing all his old Big Band records, his love of nature taught to us through gardening and camping, with our camping trips being my favorite memories of all. I am reminded of Dad so many times a day, and think of things I’d want to talk to him about all the time, and it is so painful to think about the foreverness of not being able to anymore. Until we meet again in heaven. I love you Dad, I miss you so much. Love, Diane
