I can not believe it’s been a year since you passed. I think about you almost daily. It’s incomprehensible that six days as hospital room mates that you have impacted my life this much. I can not even imagine what your family and friends that knew you for years are going through.
Ron you have changed my outlook on life. I try not to judge people by their appearance anymore. You blew my perceptions right out of the water. Your warmth, humor and kindness opened my eyes to one of the best friends I’ve ever had, even if you were a Colorado Avalanche fan and your socks never matched.
Our late night talks and vending machine raids when neither one of us could sleep because of the pain or the side-effects from the meds. It was like we grew up together.
You always put others first no matter how bad you were feeling. You had every right to be bitter and angry but you chose to make it not about you.
I hope I can have such a positive influence on others that I come into contact with in my life. Even when my dad died in July ,I was thinking of you. I could imagine you standing at Heavens gate welcoming him home.
I miss you so much and I can’t wait to see you again. See you later…
