Dear friends and colleagues,

Ron died peacefully on Thursday, March 12 at 
12:35 am. We sat with him throughout his Big Journey.

Thank you for your care for us over the past nine months.
Grace and Peace,


On the day I die, when I'm being carried
toward the grave, don't weep. Don't say,

'He's gone!  He's gone."  Death has nothing
to do with going away. The sun sets and

the moon sets, but they're not gone.
Death is a coming together. The tomb

looks like a prison, but it's really
release from union. The human seed goes

down in the ground like a bucket into
the well where Joseph is. It grows and

comes up full of some unimagined beauty
Your mouth closes here and immediately

opens with a shout of joy there.
