    To my Cousin Ron, and his family….Please accept my sincerest condolences in the passing of Ron……I wished I could have visited Hackettstown last Friday; but personal issues with Covid, made that impossible. I think my fondest memory of Ron, is when we were still living in Newark, and he took me up to Woodside Woods..He then fired off a homemade firecracker he made all by himself…..Cindy and family….and good memories of Ron always. .
