I am saddened by the passing of Ron. Ron and I spent many a time in my office discussing the changes that have occurred in our business and lots of laughs remembering how "it used to be". We will miss his smile and the warm hello he seemed to always have when he entered the room. Rest in peace and my warmest condolences to the family.
