Oh Patti, Kids, Grand-kids, Jerry and Darnell, Gordan, and to all who loved Ron,

My heart is broken and I know yours is as well. I loved him and also love all of you so very much. Both Ron and Jerry were so very dear to me and my family, growing up and in our adult years on earth. I am happy that he is no longer in pain; and is finally full of life and joy again. We all will miss him terribly until we get to see him again. I will never forget all the fun times we had together at the Rose's home and ours. All my love and prayers to all his beloved family members, relatives, and friends. Now, he truly is at home in Heaven; and he is finally pain-free!
All our love, Deborah (Hamrick) Davidson and Tony Davidson.
