Edward’s family: I'm so sorry for your loss. I went through a similar situation and I was very helped by the hope that I found in the Bible in John 5: 28, which says, "Do not amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". I am sending you a link with more information on this hope.

Ron was a wonderful man. We are two of the seemingly thousands of people who were lucky enough to get to know him. He was a rock solid friend with the kind of old-fashioned values that you don't see enough of anymore. We will miss him very much but consider ourselves lucky to have spent time getting to know him. Our condolences, Vee, to you and the rest of the family. May he rest in the peace he so deserved.

We were so sorry to hear of Ron's passing. He was a good man, greatly admired by all those who were fortunate enough to know him. He will be sorely missed. We had some great times together, and I will cherish those memories. Ron and all his family are in our prayers. God bless. Sincerely, John and Alice Reagan
