Spent many hours with Speedo and June at various restaurants in Richmond Hill. A wonderful couple who always brought a smile to those around them. Our condolences to June and the family. I will not miss the calories, but will greatly miss the friendship. Hard to find good people these days!

My dear friend, Your friendship has and always will be with Martha and me in our hearts forever.

I had the privilege of knowing Ronnie for many years through the Air National Guard. And when you knew Ronnie, you knew his family because they were part of all he did. Ronnie was a gentlemen and a genuinely nice man. He knew his job inside and out and always enjoyed helping others. I remember his great smile and his warmth and friendliness. God bless you, my friend and may he bless June, Diane and all the family.
