Mrs. Ronp (Carol) sends her thanks to the forum

Carol called me today and asked me to post her sincere appreciation for the fellowship, friendship, and prayers that have come her way the last week. She said that she had Ron cremated and she brought him home yesterday ( Friday ) and she spent hours reading every post on the forums to Ron one by one. There is no doubt that loosing Ron has had a tremendous impact on all those that knew him and had been befriended by him. As tough a time as it has been to get through.... all those that have posted their condolences have made the loss more bearable with kind words of sincere loss and heartfelt stories of the impact and interaction Ron has had in so many lives. As one of Rons many friends, I know that the lack of his presence on the forum and in my life has left a void. I don't think that there is any better way to measure a friendship than appreciating the void that someone leaves when they are gone.

Ron had an affect on almost everyone here, he was an inspiration with his dedication to the art of smoking and to his many friends he was a godsend...

Rest in Peace My Friend...

I can't say it any better than what Meateater & Beer B-Q posted.

Ron, you were one of a kind. You'll always be in our thoughts.

I'll never be able to walk by a bag of Cheeto's without thinking about you.
