    Nancy and family, My heartfelt sympathy and prayers to you. I always so enjoyed talking with Nancy when I worked at
    Westbrook Hospital. I loved the way she talked about her family. They were both such hard workers. God took another one way to soon. God Bless you all!

  11. Eunice Christensen says:

    Ron was a kind, honest man. Did you know, Nancy, that he once returned a lost purse (or a billfold) to a Westbrook lady with everything intact? I thought he should have been rewarded financially for his good deed, but he was not. I guess his reward was the knowledge that he had done the honest and honorable thing! What a wonderful man he was, and he had a marvelous family. Treasure the happy memories of your time with Ron. Love and prayers, Eunice Christensen

  12. Rachel Shipley says:

    Sending thoughts and prayers your way. I am so sorry for your loss. All my love to all of you during this difficult loss. He was always a giant in my eyes, and will leave a huge hole in the hearts of everyone that had the privilege to cross his path.
