  2. Deloy Collin says:

    Dear De Etta and family. I was very saddened to hear of Ron’s passing. Our prayers and thoughts are with you and the family. Growing up in Warner I spent a lot of time with Ron at his folks place. We used to go to shows in Lethbridge and travelled to CYO meetings in the area as well as hunting. The latter I fondly remember when Ron, Gerry and I went on a 2 week hunting trip in the Prophet river area of the Alaska highway. These are all very good memories. All our love goes out to you at this difficult time.
