Dear Beret,
I did not know Ron and we met very briefly but we shared a time and a response to history.  I honor your lives and celebrate with you Ron's continuation.  It is the most sacred of moments and ahead transition that will be most profound.  Bless you as you walk these steps.  Dianne Greenwald
