I morn for the passing of my friend 'Gilly'
He was one of a kind
Course, hard and abrasive quick to rise at any occaison
Loyal to a fault ,supportive to any degree necessary to
help a friend and a truly gentle soul underneath it all.
Always true to his freinds Always true to Kathy and their
life together on their river,and certainley
Always true to himself and his notion of what a man should be

oh dear Kathy it has been way too long ....all these years and I never got to meet Ron but I certainly shared your happiness when you married him. Although I must work Saturday, I will keep you in my heart all day and will hope we can somehow reconnect in the not too distant future. Peace.
