you I will forever miss your Dad Ron. It was so good to see you girls and how well you are doing. A couple years ago your Dad Ron updated me on you and he was so proud. He was a giver and not a taker but stern in his beleifs. I admire the person he was. Any thing he ever said was true as a man of few words to most of us A special person in my heart , as you his daughters will always be. May your life be the treasure he wanted for you. Sincerely. Bill Bosin
