I knew Ron by many names. As kids he was Red, later on he was known as Ruby or Rubicon. The name changed over time but his friendship never did. Ron, Red, or Ruby always epitomized the meaning of a true friend! Thanks for the memories Ruby you were a great role model for me growing up! Rest in Peace buddy.
