Ron, you were one of the most serious deep thinking persons I had the privilege of knowing since 1956. Plus we were both born in Iowa (Me, 1940, just south of the Scotch Ridge Presbyterian Church on Highway 69, in a farm house, no doctor.) and ended up at the same high school in Phoenix
, Arizona.

To the Abott family:
My heartfelt sympathies go out to the family and friends during this difficult time. I hope that the promise found in 1 Thessalonians 4:14 can bring you some comfort. Knowing that there is a future for the ones we have lost in death can be so reassuring.
