I was saddened to read about Ronald passing. He was on our Meals on Wheels route. What a great guy! He was always so friendly and jovial. I always looked forward to serving him. and visiting with him. My husband and I never did catch up with him at a St. Peter Claver fish fry.. He went early and we went later! Celebrate his life well.
