Dear Donna and Family. Ann and I and my entire family send our condolences on Rons passing. He was a classmate at Stritch and a friend. Along with other classmates I spent a lot of time during grade school and high school with him, and at his family's house where I got to know his parents and Janet. You can be proud of him and his accomplishments. You all are in our thoughts and prayers. Frank Delaney
