  12. Cheryl (Houze) Godsey

    Fran, DeeDee, and Bill, I was saddened to hear the news about Ron. I have so many fond memories of him growing up, especially of he and my dad. Garrett said he’ll never forget the times he hung out with Ron and Ron searching for rocks. I believe he still has those rocks even today! Try to take comfort in the fact that maybe Ron is enjoying a cup of coffee around a pot-bellied stove with my dad right now. Take care. I will pray for the entire family during your difficult time. Ron was a wonderful friend and neighbor. He will be sadly missed. Sincerely, Cheryl Godsey
