Shelley Lewis and Kurt MillsDear Susi and the Hodgins Family, Kurt and I were heart broken to hear of Ron's passing. I have so many great memories of Ron: Christmas afternoons at your house in Byron playing Pong on the Atari, going to the races as a teenager, visits to the race track in the back of your old house, afternoon parties on the grass, and Sunday night dinners at Auntie Helen's and Uncle Murray's. Not to mention all the great stories I heard second hand about Ron and dad's adventures which usually included the English boys and Dennis. Every time I saw Ron, I was welcomed with a giant smile and a warm hug. He never failed to ask about what I was I to. He was like that, always interested in everyone's lives. I was very disappointed to not be able to be at Ron's service. I imagine there were many wonderful stories told on his behalf. I would have loved to have heard them. He had so much love for you Susi and his family. That was one of the things that made him such a wonderful person. We will miss him. Sending you love from San Francisco, Shel and Kurt
