  1. Jan & kids,
    Know that I’m praying for you at this difficult time! Ron was one of the most kind, sincere man I’ve ever had the privilege of knowing. The grief of his passing will never be easy, but with time (lots of time) you will find that “tolerable” stage of grief will come. Lean on your friends and loved ones, for they are here for you. Love ya “Sista” friend!

  2. What can I say Jan? I’m completely heartbroken. Ron was an amazing person. I have never meet anyone like Ron. His love for you was beyond measure. Ron always put his family first and loved all of you so much. His dedication and faith to his Lord and Savior was unquestionable. I know my family and I will always be blessed to have had Ron in our lives. I’m praying you and your family will have peace and comfort knowing Ron is rejoicing in heaven and God is walking beside you all during this time of sorrow. Love you.


  3. Ron and Jan and all their family are the sweetest family. Ron had a genuine smile and a kindness in his heart, especially for dogs. I loved taking their family portraits and also taking sweet Sadies portrait for a Christmas gift that Jan gave Ron several years back. May God Bless You All.

  4. Jan, So sorry for your loss. I remember when you and Ron met and started dating! It was love at first sight! Our deepest condolences to you and the family. Love, LaVerne & Mark Bramson

  5. Thinking of You, Jan and your family. Hope your cherished memories will help comfort You at this time. Truly sorry for Your loss. Bless You- Annette Danielson
