Condolence & Memory Journal

Wanda, I am sorry for your loss. When I think of Ron, memories of our HHS years bring a smile to my face. Ron was a part of those memories because whenever Ron was around, his great sense of humor would brighten the day. I remember Ron also because he was friendly to everyone. Such great memories. I am praying for you and your family.

To Wanda and the whole Edgerley family. So sorry to hear of Ron's passing. Seeing you guys not so very long ago reminded me that Ron's spirit was never broken by his sickness. He was still the same as I remember him before his illness was apparent. Now there are two whojiggies in heaven. Oh boy!

Wanda & family, wish we could be there right now to comfort you in person but know that we are with you across the miles in thought and prayer. Our 42 years of friendship have so many wonderful memories of fun times with Ron that will be forever etched in our minds. He was a great man with a wonderful sense of humor and love of life. There is sadness for all of us at his absence from us but yet joy that his sufferings here on earth are over and he is enjoying his heavenly home dancing with Heather in that joyous reunion!

Wanda, Heaven became a lot more sweeter last Friday for you and your family. You and Ron were good friends during our high school years. Ron and some others of us were part of a group we called the 5 D's back then. I won't say anything about what we did. We'd all be in jail. You have our sympathy and yet joy in knowing Ron has the no more's: tears, pain or trials.
