    To Ronald's family and friends, I am very sorry for your loss. May the God of comfort be with you to comfort you during these hard times. (1 Cor 1:3, 4). May His words set forth in the Bible strengthen you. Such scriptures as Isaiah 33:24, John 5:28,29 and Rev 21:3,4. Our enemy death will soon be swallowed up forever. (1Cor 15:26). Take care.
