Dear Sue and Girls: Betty and I are so sorry for your loss. Ron was a very good man, a friend and one who we will always remember fondly. All those Aggrevation games in Farmington will always be remembered as great fun, even if we did beat you all fair and square. I told Betty last night that I know Ron was a great Grandpa. How could he not be? I know it must have gotten pretty rough the last few years but I also know you all were strong enough to make it through. Please know that you and the girls are in our thoughts and prayers and we are hurting because of your loss. The pictorial tribute brought tears to our eyes and they sure caught the essence of Ron's life with you and the family. May God bless you and the family in this tremendous loss. Love, Dale and Betty St. Gemme
