Dearest Barbara and family:
Although we have never met in person I have heard much about you Barbara from your loving spouse, Ron. I am the sister of Ron's dear friend, Carm Grande, from Johnstown Catholic High school days. I am so sorry to hear of Ron's passing. I always enjoyed receiving his emails as both Carm and I live in Califiornia. Thru Carm's travels he always met up with Ron when he was in the Johnstown area to visit with many of our relatives still living within that immediate area. Please accept my prayers on the loss of dear Rom. May he rest in peace as he enters the gates of heaven. Blessings to you as you grieve for your loss. Hugs to all!
