I am truly sorry for your loss and my prayers are with your family. He was s very special neighbor that always had a special treat for my husky before we moved away to North Carolina. He had been on my mind and wish that I would’ve gotten in touch before he passed. Blessings,

Kevin, Jon, and your entire family. Ron and I feel your sadness in our hearts. Growing older (as we are) only creates these difficult times in our lives; this circle of life; I am told it is the understanding and faith in God's purpose for all life. Kevin, you and Jon are two of the most compassionate men I know These times are so difficult; rely on your inner strength to help each other. My wish for you is understanding and love in multitudes. Also know you are thought of daily with love.

It was a great honor to have had Uncle Ronald Byers in my life!. He was always an inspiration, and always willing to listen to teach. Uncle Ron, you will be greatly missed and love. Now go and live life, happy ever after with that beautiful Aunt Lois.
