  1. So long, ‘ole neighbor. It was a pleasure having you as my “across the street” neighbor. It was fun to see the delight you had in slowly driving in with yet another ‘Vette or other exotic vehicle. God speed on this eternal journey. And, my deepest sympathy to Anita, your family, and dear little Scooter.

  2. Ron, though it’s been a few years, you are a close friend and I wish we could have visited again. Through our many experiences, we had many laughs and times we cried together. I guess that’s a true friend! You will always be ”Bubba” to me. I’m so glad you found happiness you always looked for and I know you are in a better place. Thanks for the memories and your French dip was the best! Miss you Bubba!
