Thank you to all of Ron's customers for giving him a special reason to deliver mail in your neighborhood everyday. He truly enjoys his job and brings home some great stories for us to hear. He was especially touched by the "surprise" party in his honor at the Brew's house! He will really miss every one of his customers and will think about you all while we are living in Texas! You all have his cell phone number, so if you miss him badly - give him a call!
Thanks to the writer for the very special article about my husband!
