In the end, everyone is aware of this: nobody keeps any of what he has, and life is only a borrowing of bones. -- Pablo Neruda. My deepest condolences to all of you. I have wonderful memories of Ron's laughter and zest for fun. He was an incredibly generous man. I am most thankful that Ron (and Karen) made it possible for me to have a best friend in life! I am sorry I can't be there for the service, but have faith we will celebrate Ron's life this summer together. Sending my love, Sarah
Sarah Fearn, April 18, 2018 My deepest condolences to Stone family. May the almighty Lord comfort you during this difficult time. May your beloved rest in God eternal peace. Julia Elias, April 12, 2018 Karen and family, I'm so sorry to hear about Ron's passing. Take comfort that he's now home and enjoying hearing the phrase "Well done my good and faithful servant". His (and Karen's) advocacy for prisoners is an inspiration to me and I thank the Lord for having known you both. May the Souls of the Faithful departed, rest in Peace. Amen, and may Perpetual Light shine upon him.
Pat LaCour, April 9, 2018 Dear Karen and Family, We are so sorry for your loss! Ron was such a bright light and the world seems dimmer now that he is not here with us! We share in your sorrow and please know that Ron will be greatly missed, we were blessed to know him! Ron was a tremendous inspiration to us and the other members of the Ministry to the Imprisoned! We so appreciate his passion for our imprisoned brothers and sisters, especially those on death rows everywhere! His tireless work for the imprisoned will always be remembered. While Ron is no longer here on this earth, I feel like the ministry along with the men and women on death rows have a great intercessor in heaven for them now! With heartfelt gratitude and sympathy, Kay & Alan Kay & Alan Leonard, April 9, 2018 Ron was a great neighbor and friend. So saddened to hear of his passing but uplifted by knowing he is with our Lord and Savior. Our prayers are with Karen, the children and grandchildren....God bless you!
