    I’m so very sorry for your loss. But may the words of Jesus Christ be able to help each of you that all of you will see him again. How? By having a little Faith and Trust in the promises found in the Bible and esp from Gods Own Son, Jesus Christ when he had spoken them in John 5:28,29 about a time when he will resurrect ones like Mr. Stemler back to life again and then he will have the ability to live forever as the another promise has been given at Psalm 37:29 which says: The righteous will posess the earth and they will live forever on it. So may these words bring a real sense of comfort to your hearts and minds as you can see your sleves welcoming him back into your arms again to hold and to cherish forever on a paradise earth.

    Ron was very kind to me growing up. He loved his daughters deeply and was always protective of his family. His sense of humor was memorable as he seemed to smiling. I was sad to learn of his passing. These are the years he would have enjoyed most.
