Dear Barb,

So sorry to hear of Ron passing. Dori just recently told me he was ill.
Life is so hard sometimes and I know that it is devastating to lose someone we love. Donnie and I will be praying for you in the coming days as you grief. Please know we are thinking about you and your family during this most difficult time.

I have good memories of spending time with you and Ron and helping with the bread bowls getting ready for a festival with your concession stand. Also of working together.

Know we are thinking about you.

Donnie and Sandi Weiler
