Condolence & Memory Journal

Candle

I've known Ron since the 4th grade. Words seem inadequate to express our corporate grief. Indeed, we grieve in proportion to how much we love and to know Ron was to love Ron and thus our grief is profound. He was a beautiful spirit, a great leader, an ambassador of joy, and amazing human being. His loss leaves a great emptiness in our world. My thoughts and prayers are with his sweet family. I will miss him always.

I was in highschool with Ron and what I remember is his smile, his ease with everyone around him, and his kindness. He was just a genuinely nice guy and a pleasure to be around. I am so sorry for your loss.

I met Ron through HTR. After our first initial meeting, he called to give me a listing one day. He didn't want a referral fee, just for me to take care of the seller. Spreading goodwill through a random act of kindness in his world. He will missed by so many and he touched so many lives. Prayers for the family!

We are so heartbroken over the passing of Ron. Ron started helpin our son Drew Swade Hardee 20 years ago with his baseball skills. Ron soon became a part of our family. He would spend holidays,birthdays and just hanging out with us. We were truly blessed that such a kind soul shared his life with us. We will all be forever changed because of his kindness and goodness. We loved Ron and will forever miss his sweet smile and caring personality.

To Ron's entire family, I am so sorry to hear about Ron. I was one of his teachers back in 6th grade. I remember his enthusiasm and what a good student he was. Years later, I talked with him and was so proud of his accomplishments. I am praying for each of you and sending you my love.

And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.
There shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away. Rest peace.
