My Dear Brother Ron, May you rest in peace knowing your final wishes were honored. Your memorial service today was a celebration of your life and was shared by your loving family and friends. We all felt the presence of the Holy Spirit circling among us. You too blessed us your with your presence.

We all know you are perfectly healed and rejoicing in the glory of God. I know your earthly mother and daddy welcomed you home with open arms. I am sad that you are gone, but rejoice knowing that one day I too will be reunited with my family in GOD’S kingdom to live eternally.

Your loving brother, Jacky

Ron I will miss you so very much cause you were my friend, my companion, my lawyer, my business consultant and my soul mate with Clark Gable “Blue Eyes”. There is so much I could said about the times we had laughing, crying, sharing and caring. You were one of a kind “sweetie”, I so dearly will miss you, but I know that you are up there feeling great – breathing on your own without hoses and having a great time with your parents and others that have gone before you. Please watch over me and I’ll be waiting for my pat on my shoulder so I know you made it up there. One more thing, could you said a special hello to my Dad, sister-Gail, Granddaddy & Grandmother, “Mom” Clara Shell, Trula, Roger, Uncle Olis & Aunt Mary and especially Uncle Jack. Love to all and see everyone some time in the future. My God Bless You All.

Ron Shell, the brother I never had! I could write a book but not enough room. Met in the mid 70’s, lost contact til mid 80’s, 20+ years of a great friendship I’ll cherish forever. Not a day goes by that I don’t remember things we did, places we worked, people we met that always ask, How’s Shell! You are truly missed my friend, my brother! WE LOVE YOU, SHELL!!

Dan & Pat

Save me a place up there, we’ll meet again, like before!
