Ron was always very good to me. I was one of his frequent customers at PC and he made numerous house calls (back in the day.) I learned of his Family and the tragedies he lived through. He was a man with a great heart - have to believe he's rejoicing with his Family again in Heaven.

May God comfort you at this time, knowing he is in a better place - but sad that he is not here. Good-bye Ron.

Sympathy to family & friends of Ronald. From Maxine Mikula & family.

Please accept my heartfelt sympathy for the loss of your beloved Ron. Death is such a vicious enemy. Soon it will be eliminated, along with all its causes. Gone will be death that only brings heartache and sorrow. The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death (1Corinthians 15:26, KJV. A beautiful New World is described in Revelation 21:4: And He will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more. Neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away. Our loved ones can live again to enjoy what God has promised when His Kingdom comes. I hope this message has brought you the comfort you need and deserve at this time.
