    For the short time I met you, Ron, you made an impression as one hell of a shipmate. I'm sorry we couldn't get to know I another better because we shared some great memories during service in the Navy.

    I know Ron mostly from his love of life, his steadfast refusal to take things unduly seriously, and his unique sense of humor. He was a small part of my life and I'm better for it.
