Oh my Tonia, and kids and family! My heart is so broken. I can’t believe it and don’t want to right now. I loved Ronald so much and had really missed working with him after all those years at E-Systems together. He and I were planning on going arrowhead hunting if my back/legs would allow it. We had talked for months about it. I pray that God will please wrap his arms and love around all of you and comfort you and take care of you during this very difficult time of deep sorrow. I will miss Ronald until my time on this earth is over. May God bless you all. Love you all. Kendall Murphy & Lisa
