Correction: Ronald did not die of cancer, he was never diagnosed of treated for cancer. He had A-Fib and died from a pulmonary embolism in his lung.

Ron was the best brother in the world, he would stand outside my window and make faces at me and act silly. He sent me e-mails with jokes and compliments on food, he called to see how I was if he didn't see my shade up every morning. When he seen me leave the house he would call me and say, where you going, when you coming home? I'm just trying to
aggravate you like you do me! I would see him at Jewel or driving around and would follow him to annoy him and he did the same to me. He was the hardest working man I have known and he cared about everyone. Before getting sick he wanted company, he loved Christmas and could never have enough lights on his house or listen to enough Christmas carols. He always worried about me, even on his death bed he said how bad he felt he could not help me, I could go to him for anything and he did it. He suffered so much but he never really complained. He was more to me than a brother, he was my best friend and so much more than that. We were together every day. Others are here and gone, but Ron was always here for me, from little kids to his last day.
