Ron was/is one of my favorite cousins. I did not get to spend quality time with Ron these past few years except through email but fondly remember our younger years when the whole family got together at our grandparents home in Oklahoma.
I will be looking forward to our next meeting.

Colleen and family, I am sorry to
hear of Ron’s passing and saddened
to loose a member of our family.
I lived in Jenks,OK. across the
street from his grand parents,Geroge and Daisy Clark.
George, was my dad’s brother, so, I
knew Ron at an early age as I was
born in Sept. 1934 and played together when Alma came to visit.
May the good Lord Bless and Keep
You and His Light Shine upon You.

What a precious little boy Ronnie was growing up in Mexia, Texas!!! His Parents & min were best friends – they enjoyed many hours of bridge together while Ronnie & I were outside “catching lightning bugs & playing! He was loved in our hometown by everyone who knew him & everyone in town was his friend! Ronnie told me in an email once that “he had a personal crush on me all of his life” which thrilled me so much since “I was an older woman” – thank you Rinnie for that! I was so proud of the fact that he was a Marine for 8 Years during the Korean War & he was so proud to serve his country ! Now, you’re with your sweet Mother & Daddy & your sister, Coleen
My sympathy & love to your 2 Sons & your Coleen
I will always miss you & always love you!

Excellent customer service, they made you feel like you were their only customer. Very helpful and explained what we should expect during the process. They basically took care of our needs during this time. They contacted DFW National Cemetery for us which made it a smooth experience. Definitely will use them again.
