Our deepest sympathy goes out to Ron's family. You were very supportive to him. This is from Connie Slye and Bertha Kuhn. My father, Harold Kuhn, was Ron's roommate for a while. My father enjoyed his company. We are unable to attend the visitation as my mother has not been well. With sympathy, Connie Slye and Bertha Kuhn
