Patsy and Dennis, I am was sorry to hear of Ron's passing. He taught me Drivers Ed. back at East Chambers a long time ago. The story about how to negotiate a blind corner in downtown Beaumont, will always be etched in my mind .I was happy to meet him again when I joined the KC's in Nederland. He was a kind and well respected. I will miss our conversations (usually about golf) and his porcupine meatballs.
