As my brother Ken said, thank you for being a great husband for our mom. She had many joyful and peaceful years with you. You were a kind and generous man and will be missed by all you touched. It was difficult to watch ALS take over your body and also inspiring to see you stay so brave and positive. May you rest in peace. Love Ron
