Prayers to Nancy, Wayne and entire family. I love this picture, just as I remember growing up across the street when I was just a kid RIP with Norma.
Ron was one of my “coffee guys “ and one that made my day every time he came. When I brought him a warm muffin he would say,in his sweet, gruff voice” you’re alright!”
I loved that.
Just found out. My brother Jim called me from Cape Cod to tell me. I’m so sorry for your loss. Quite a guy!!! Great memories. I’ll keep you all in my thoughts and prayers
