Alan Busche Hello Dorothy: I am a Huff n' Puff hockey player. I enjoyed playing against Ron. He was a fine player and a great and gentle friend to us all. His memory is something I cherish. We should all be as kind to one another as he was to us. Sincerely, Alan Busche
Aries and Susan BergsmaDorothy and family We mourn for your loss, Ron was a great colleague, I had the opportunity to work with him,play golf with him and play lots of hockey with him. The angels from their thrones on high Look down on us with wondering eye, That when we are but passing guests We build such strong and solid nests, But where we think to to dwell for aye We scarce take heed a stone to lay Sue and Harry Bergsma
