Thanks Ron

Life wasn't always easy for Ron but whenever I saw him he was happy. Thanks for the lesson Ron. We can all learn from you. Music was always within you and without you and if you believe in such things, Rock 'n' Roll Heaven just welcomed another great singer. I just heard about our loss today but inevitably such sad news easily travels thousands of miles. Now it's time to say goodnight.
heaven has another angel

I am saddened to know that Ron passed away. He was a good friend and we shared many good times gigging in years gone by. My thoughts are with his family and friends in Perth County. Rest in peace my long time friend. Someone in Texas cared about you and will miss you.
you were a great singer Ron
