Tribute to a Patriot!
I feel it necessary to pay tribute to a fellow patriot who has gone the way of all the earth. My dear Father-in-Law Ron, who treated me as much like a son as his own awesome boys, died July 3, 2008. I will always treasure his words of wisdom and his 'tell it like it is' attitude. Ron learned to shoot from his father at a young age and passed that down to his own sons. It was always a pleasure to accompany him to the range and shoot off a few reloads. Ron was a straight shooter and had a sense of humor that sometimes only he understood. He was a genuinely happy man, and his smile was contagious. He was a proud father, grandfather, friend, husband, son, and brother. He follows his mother, sister,brother and father in death. I can imagine the great reunion happening now on the other side of the veil. The loss is fresh, the hurt is deep, but the knowledge of our Heavenly Fathers Plan is a comfort that is priceless. Ron, I will miss you, but look to the time when we can again rejoice in each others company.
