Condolences to the Family

September 02, 2014

This was my Uncle Ron, whom I was always very fond of.  I last saw him about 4 or 5 years ago when I was in Lancaster for a brief visit.  I am so sorry that I did not know of his passing until just recently.  To Pam and to my cousins, who, sadly, I do not even know, my husband Walt and I send you our condolences.  He was such a “GOOD GUY”.  Sharon (Toner) Gable, SW Florida  Family members are welcome to contact me at  Blessings to you all.

My heart goes out to you Pam and to your family my dear friend – I just found out this morning and my heart aches for all of you.  May Ron rest in peace and may all the good memories stay with all you.  I love you Pam!
