Sending all of you and your extended families our sincere condolences. I always felt so welcome whenever I would visit your parents home. Always greeted with kindness and offered whatever was on the menu. Your father always thanked me for taking the time to come and visit. I always felt that I had to visit because for me it was like a trip back in time. So many good memories from years gone by when we were all kids, stories, laughter and lots of foolishness and fun.

This has been a very sad year for you all. Grief is a friend to no one , but a process that heals our hearts. May your Father Rest In Peace. and each of you take comfort in knowing he isn’t suffering anymore. Sailor’s farewell Ron.

To you all sorry to hear about Ron S passing , always waved up to me going up or down the road . I could hear him whistling to get someone attention or trying to get the dog back. Going to miss him but will always remember him . Thinking of you all at this time .

Bonnie and all the White Family; sincere condolences in the passing of your Dad. The last time I saw him we both shared some lunch and a chat at your Mom’s funeral. We had a few laughs as we go back as long as I can remember. The other time we met, he was at No Frills looking for the infamous hard bread and it was Christmas, so he was making the signature Christmas dish….. steak, gravy and bruise for all you guys. May his soul rest peacefully in Jesus and may you all feel the comfort of God’s unending love at this difficult time. Blessings!

My heart breaks, so very sorry for your loss. Have many memories of going up to the cabin, camping years ago and best of all Ron made the best bruise and bologna gravy. I can taste it now. Love you all. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
Love Joanie, Darren, Marcus & Sophia

Bonnie, our sympathy goes to you and your brothers in the loss of your dad. The greatest consolation of all is to have no regrets and you certainly have none.
