  6. To one of the greatest men I ever had the privilege to know – Ron, we miss you now you have gone, but we still talk about you because you are still very present in our hearts.

    “Always a smile and a story to share,
    and a joke to be told with Ron’s special flair.
    A glass named Betsy he did hold,
    and she’s filled to the brim with liquid gold.
    Stories of horses and mining tales of old,
    there was no stopping the BIG MAC as long as Betsy was Cold.
    We got to share a beer and a wine,
    and the privilege and honour – that was all mine.
    You are not here with us anymore Ron,
    but we speak of you like you’ve never gone”.

    Rest in PEACE my good friend.
