  1. Father, Lord in Heaven, we understand you welcomed home your earthy son, Ronald, on such a beautiful sunny day, making his old nickname ‘Sonny’ all the more appropriate. We know he no longer suffers the burdens and pains of the flesh, but stands before Your loving glory, face-to-face, in eternal life. But for us, Father, we ask for your strength and compassion to heal our gaping wounds of loss. With time, we understand his passing will not feel as raw to us as it is now, but we can only achieve that point of grace by keeping our steadfast faith in You. Look mercifully on his devoted children, Jason, Joy, and Chris, beloved siblings Arlene, Judy, and Howard, best friend Bill, loving nieces, nephews, and extended family, friends and colleagues and, also Lord, his adoring pets, for our senses of shock and loss are great.

    Ronald, you were not only our uncle, but also our friend. You always had that winsome smile, a silly face, some loving, sound, advice, or a shoulder to cry on. I still feel your hug, see that twinkle in you eyes, and hear your last words to us, “See ya soon.” Give Aunt Dawn, Gram, and Pop Pop a big hug for us. Know that you will always live in our hearts and cherished memories, until each one of us joins you in God’s loving arms.

  2. Joy and Chris..I’m so sorry for your loss… I will miss Ronald very much… My thought are with you and your family.
