Ann, Wayne and to all the descendents of Ruth and Holcomb Taylor also, to the Ralph Meeler family I send my sympathy. Miss Ruth drove our school bus from White Plains to Greensboro. Irene and I visited Miss Ruth. She told us all about her children, what they were doing, and she was so proud of their many accomplishments. I never met Ralph but the good words were there for him too. She was grateful for what you all did for her and as happy as one can be in old age. I have read obituaries of others in your family passing so recently. With Ralph's death now the family is having more sad days. Our thoughts and love are with each and every one of you. Hazel Gentry Copelan and husband, Norris Copelan

Ron and Family, I had the pleasure of working with your dad for several years at SRP. I,m certainly sorry to hear of his passing. It's hard to give up a loved one but the time will come for all of us to do that so just know that the Lord will give you the peace and comfort to continue on with your life.
