  • Charles & Cynthia Webb We are so sad to learn of the passing of both Ron & Carole. We missed this past summer doing a lunch together with them as we did most every summer when we were north from Florida because we are now full time in Florida. We are making a donation to the Living Well in Geneva in Ron and Carol's memory.
