Ron & Barbara,

Ronnie's passing to new life is indeed a bittersweet loss to us all as well as an affirmation of our faith and trust in a loving God who welcomes us home and takes us as we are into His merciful and unconditional loving arms. When we were leading the Folk Group back in the 1980 s we were TRULY blessed as a parish to have Ronnie join us in song with his base guitar, and in doing so, elevated our liturgical selections to be truly a prayerful act of homage and praise to the Lord of us all. I saw it as a ministry that Ronnie took to heart in his own quiet way and was faithful to it week after week when we were there and well beyond our time at St Denis. He was dear friend and a fellow troubador...
Godspeed, Ronnie, and may the Lord hold you in the palm of His hands for all eternity.
Fred & Jan Corneau
