Hi Ken and Family
Thinking of you all at this time Your Dad was a really good man
Grant Muir, Waikeke Island
Hello Margaret and all your loved ones.
I was so sorry to read that you have lost your special Ron. What a great man he was, always a big smile and welcoming. He showed his love for you in so many ways Margaret. He was admired by all of us who knew him. I think of all the hours he put in helping the MS Society over the past years. My Bill appreciated all the help he gave him when involved with the Society. I am so sorry we have not caught up over the last years, sighted you at church occasionally with a smile and a wave.
A lot of our old friends have moved on and it is a difficult time each time we read another has gone.
Margaret you are in my prayers, hoping that you are coping well. May God bless you and all your family.
