Ron was a good friend of my parents, Glade and Jean Jordan, and I have fun memories of decorating their yard at Christmas. Ron and Edith were always welcoming, and though I haven't seen them in a while, I will miss running into them occasionally at the store and saying hello. I will think of Ron with the smile I always saw on his face. I give my deepest sympathies to Edith and to their children and grandchildren. I hope he is having a drink and visiting with my mom and dad in Heaven.


We will miss Ron very much, My prayers to his family and friends
