Ron’s family can best describe their thoughts and feelings through the poem:


God saw you getting tired, and a cure was not to be, so he put his arms around you and whispered, “come to Me”. With tearful eyes we watched you and saw you pass away. Although we loved you dearly, we could not make you stay. A loving heart stopped beating, a cherished papa at rest. It broke our hearts to see you go, until we meet again.
