Prayers go out to The Thompson Family. I will miss the conversation I shared with Ron during lunch, mostly about food and events. Ron always had a huge smile on his face anytime we discussed my next food adventures. I will miss the big guy. May God's arms surround you and hold you all during this difficult transition of life.

My thoughts and prayers are with you, his family, at this sad time of Ron's passing. Since 1998, I enjoyed meeting up with Ron in Immaculata's kitchen and having good conversations. He worked hard to please everyone and was happy to know when you enjoyed what he had prepared for our meals. May his dear soul rest in peace and may you find strength in the Lord in the days ahead.

You are one of my big influences for my love of cooking. You were always the "go-to Guy" with any cooking questions. An incredible cook/chef and all around fantastic man! One of my favorite men who made a great impact in my life! A quiet giant...always willing to help, listen and make crazy jokes and remarks. I will always remember the funny sounds you'd make when teasing the boys, giving them wet noogies in the ears, making everyone laugh! I know you will hold your grandchild in your arms before GOD delivers them to our arms.
I will miss you greatly until we all meet again.

Aunt D'Mae, Shane and Aaron... Dad & I are always here for you whenever you need a shoulder to cry on or arms to hold you or someone to talk to and reminisce with. 
With all of our love and affection... Sonya & (Uncle) LeRoy

May he rest in peace and may you know God's comforting presence. Sister Anne Marie Burton
