So sorry for your loss. My husband and I have known Mr Scott for 30 plus years he attended our wedding.
My husband and Mr Scott were born on the same day and year in the same hospital.
The greatest memory of Mr Scott was many years ago we had Patricks club in the center market and MR Scott would enter and say I’ve been drinking ya all.
I was fortunate to see him many times in the last 2 years. He was a wonderful friend and will miss him.
He was truly unique and one of a kind! He was a true friend and so very talented. I hope he has found the peace and comfort he sought in this life. I bet Jimmy was at the gate waiting for him. We will miss him dearly!
Heaven called and he answered. Ron will be missed. My deepest sympathy to his entire family.
