I am so sorry to hear this news. My condolences to Sue and to Ron's family members. He was a good man who was talented and provided well for his family. I was happy that he & Sue found their way to each other to fill the void left after Ron had lost Jett, and Sue had lost my brother, Jerry. They created a new and happy life together. Ron had a good sense of humor and I always enjoyed our visits. I hope that the family can find comfort through faith, knowing he is in a peaceful place, and in God's hands.
Sending our deepest sympathy. Ronnie will be greatly missed. Remembering you in thought and prayer.
May God grant the family comfort and peace at this time. Also, may He grant the comfort of faith in knowing that Ronnie has stepped into glory and beholds the Throne of The Lamb of God, and awaits the day when they all may come see what he beholds at this time. No more tears nor sorrow for Ronnie Meyer, joy unspeakable and full of glory.God bless you all.

Sue and Family. We are so sad to hear of Ron's death. Ron was a good man all of his life. We were close in age and as you know, we grew up in the same neighborhood and ran with the same crowd.. Losing Ron is like losing a brother. Barbara and I will pray that God will give you the strength and courage to get you through these dark days. We will be in touch with you in the very near future. Love Bill and Barbara.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Marion County Senior Citizens.
