From Eunice Foster Lee...

Since I now live in New Jersey, I am not always aware of what is happening. My relationship with Ronnie was through Lois Anderson Galyardt. We graduated from the Kanwaka Country School in May 1952. I also knew Sandy and Neil were very good friends of my brother Darrell Foster. I extend my deepest sympathy to all of your during this time of great sorrow. May God give you peace and comfort during these days and weeks.

Dear Shirley and Family,
I’m so sorry to hear about Ron and we are so sadden by your loss. We won’t be able to make the funeral or visitation, but I want you to know we will be thinking about you and praying for you. Forty-seven years of marriage is truly a blessing. May God comfort you and your family. Remember the good times and years. God Bless You, your cousin, Brad and Linda
