Dear Beret and Family,

We are saddened to hear of Ron's final step on his human journey.  We  
are grateful to him and you, especially for the sharing of his final  
days with such dignity and compassion.

You stand at the closed door
through which your loved one has passed.
Those of us who love you
stand beside you at the door.

Maya Angelou

Be with the peace that passes all understanding.

Grace and peace and love,

Sandra and Bob Rafos
