Ron my heart goes to your family, Biological and Warriors Watch. You were a heck of a rider, and now I'm a little envious you'll be riding with our crew in region 7. Try to keep it under 120mph up there and rally the guys for a flagline welcome when our next hero reaches you.   You're in our hearts!

Ron,

I will miss seeing you at missions, often times looking exactly like that picture in the first post.  Reclining comfortably on your ride, patiently waiting for your next opportunity to thank our fightin' men and women..

With this post we'll move you officially into Region 7 where you will ride with JonD, Deb, Mike, Irish and all our other WWR members who now continue the mission for all eternity.

Until we ride together again.........

"These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman."

Thomas Paine

Riding in Memory of JonD, Proud Parent (Deb), Mike, Irish, Kat, RCRON, Wheelmaster & Chicago Jim.
