We are most saddened at the loss of our dearest Ronald, my Uncle, who was the great humorist in our lives. He fought his illness with courage and was jovial and spirited to the very end. He is now in God's hands and with his Mother, "Tom", and his Daddy, "Dad Gerald" and his Sisters, Arlene and Geraldine. We will miss his sweet smile, his distinctive fun loving, aggravating nature and his inane ability to make us laugh. Prayers to all, may God grant us all mercy and peace in the difficult days to come and may the memories sustain us through our grief. Rest well, Uncle Ronald.
