Ron,

     You will be missed for ever. I remember when you signed on and how much I have always enjoyed reading your posts. Your knowledge and willingness to share information will be missed. I also remember your sadness and apprehension with the move. It was good to have you reestablished and back on line. I'll miss you and I must say how very fortunate I feel to have known you ..... at least for a while. God bless you Ron.

Truly sorry to here the news. Carol, my thoughts are with you. I didn't know Ron well, but he was one of the first to welcome me here and was kind enough to chat with me a few times to help me through a smoke. He wrote some great posts and was an asset to anyone who was whiling to listen.

RIP RonP

You will be missed

Ron will certainly be missed here on the forum. He was an inspiration to many here and gave great input and advise. I have a feeling he is getting the smoker ready up there to give the Big Guy a meal he will never forget!! Rest in Peace Ron and many Blessed days to you Carol.

This is horrible news. I was just logging back on to check out the other post about Ron to see if there were any updates on his health and I found this dreaded post. Thoughts and prayers go out to his family and also to the SMF family. This truly is a dark day for us all. Ron you will be missed.

The last thing I expected to see was a post announcing the passing of one of our beloved SMF members. No matter how much, or little, you may have interacted with Ron he was always a man of great character with a humble heart.

RIP Ron - many condolences, Carol and family.

RonP we're gonna miss you buddy! 

I sure thought we would see him back posting around here someday soon.  I think will miss some of his techniques the most.
