Guest Book

  • Donna Kuntzi So sorry to hear of your loss. Losing someone so dear to you is never easy. I hope this time of sorrow passes smoothly.
  • Brett Larson As Ron's neighbor for 26 years, you get to know a part of a persons personality that gets displayed outdoors. Ron was an avid Northwestern and White Sox fan proudly displaying the team flag when they won that day. A veteran from the Korean War era, Ron in more recent years was a tireless advocate for preserving the stories of local WWII Veterans. But I think his greatest battle I witnessed was with the leaves and acorns that fell from the many oak trees on their property. In his attempts to preserve the tranquility of the suburban yard look of green grass, versus the brown covering of seasonal leaves and acorns, the battle front was in constant motion moving back and forth between being "cleared" or "covered", until the electric blower arrived, where upon Ron never yielded in his successful daily blowing. We will miss the sounds of the fall season Ron. Be at peace neighbor. Brett and Jacquelyn Larson
