Ron was such a good person! No doubt in my mind he is definitely in heaven! My daughter Jessica and Ron were housemates at Blaalid. He was her friend. He will be missed by us. Definitely will remember the Bible. Sincere sympathy to all who loved him. God's special children

I am his niece & I enjoyed seeing him when we got together as a family. He never forgot my name & was quite a jokester! We will miss you Ronnie!

Ronny was my favorite. He just loved me so "unconditionally" Sorry that I cannot make it to his service, but the winter driving conditions does not permit me to do so.

I provided supports to Ron at both the North Kimball and Blaaid homes. He talked about his family all the time; especially mom and dad. He was a jokester and loved life and the people who shared his life. My condolences to his family, friends, and staff at LifeQuest. He will be definitely missed.

Helen and family,
I worked with Don but got to know Ron when he would come over to visit. He was always ready with a come back statement. I even got to experience a few of his hugs. Ron will be missed a great deal at LifeQuest. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. Blessings - Ann Aalbers
