I was very saddened about the passing of Ron. He was my financial services advisor for many years. He never led me wrong. It was because of him that I started investing at a young age. The best decision I ever made. He was truly one of the nice guys in our society. We used to have some of the best discussions, especially since we were both Wisconsin natives. He will be truly missed. My deepest sympathy goes out to you and your family. Ed Lewis
