Ron was my sisters husband. They were married in 1984 in Snohomish.
This is Ron (on the left) & his brother Jerry (on the right)
Ron was diagnosed with terminal cancer in April 05.
So to say that my family has been thru HELL in the past two years would be an understatement. Ron lost his battle with cancer on 22 March 06. His health had gone downhill fast and the only good thing I can say is that he didn't suffer long.
When friends would ask me what I thought of my brother-in-law I use to say "Well he isn't someone I would go have a beer with but, he loves my sister so he is great."
I never thought about it much but when he and my sister took me in and cared for me it was my chance to see just how much he really did love his family. Even after we all found out he was sick he still took the time to ask how I was doing. Or how my therapy was. He would bring in a glass of milk or just pop his head in the door to say hi.
So to you Ron I want to say it was an honor to know you.
