Nancy Reams and her family, Carolyn and Ron Smith, Charlotte Reams Russeth, Doug Reams, and Mary Reams Millard all have fond memories of Ron when he was in high school and afterwards. We will never forget his sweet and fun nature, his love of sports, and how he filled the room with his personality. We are so sorry for your loss.

I’m so sorry for your loss. Ron was such a wonderful man of God. He made huge impressions on my heart as a young teen. He was always so kind and compassionate. He always showed the love of Jesus and loved people. What a testimony! Praying for you all. Wish we were on that side of the world right now to hug you.

To Connie: You and Ron were like second parents to me growing up. The countless meals and the times I stayed at your house, you would’ve thought I was your adopted daughter. I needed that in my life so much! There’s no payment or words I could express to say what you both have meant to me. I will see Ron again. Ron made a lasting impression on so many lives. I can’t imagine how good it must have felt to hear thou good and faithful servant enter in. That’s what we all should live each day to hear.
