Dear Cousin, I am terribly sad to hear of Ron’s passing. Although our interactions were few during our lifetime I always remember him as a kind, intelligent person. This world is a lesser place without him. Steven Carriger, February 23, 2021 Dear Mary, We are both so very sorry for your loss. We are so thankful for our time with you and Ron on our trip to Italy. We will all miss Ron. Our prayers are with you and your family as you mourn his loss. I hope that you have peace in knowing that Ron is not suffering and he is with his Heavenly Father. Love, Janice and Don Janice and Don Hull, November 30, 2020 I (Diana) spent many evenings at Boomer and other church events talking with Ron enthusiastically about our passions -- art, books, various authors, reporters, He was such an intelligent man. Now, I vision him sitting with his brother, Don, surrounded by angels who are listening to their various interests. Perhaps, Ron is creating a mural in heaven. He will be so missed by his friends. We love you Mary. Diana & Greg Richards, November 30, 2020 “It is a narrow mind which cannot look at a subject from various points of view.”  George Eliot, Middlemarch Ron taught me to broaden my mind and see things like art, scripture, and people from a different perspective. You will be missed my friend.
Ken & Karen Tomchuk, November 29, 2020 Words can not express the sense of loss. Ron was like a brother to both of us. He was kind, gentle, caring, peace-loving and complex in many ways. We miss him. May he rest in peace and once again be united with twin brother Don. Mary, our thoughts, prayers and friendship are with you and the family always. Sid and Edie Stohs, November 29, 2020 O God, whose mercies cannot be numbered, Accept our prayers on behalf of thy servant Ron Aday, and grant him an entrance into the land of light and joy, in the fellowship of thy saints, through Jesus Christ thy Son our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.

I am saddened to hear of Ron's passing and so sorry to hear that he was ill and in pain. My sympathies are sent to all the family and especially you Mary. You and Ron were our first "couple" friends here in Austin and I treasure the print I bought from the Kerrville Museum when Ron was a curator more that ever now. You took beautiful and loving care of Ron and he provided loving support and life partnership to you. You were a beautiful couple. My prayers are for you at this time and for Ron as he celebrates a new life of Peace and Joy. Britt Britt Behrens, November 27, 2020 Dear Mary and Family, I am saddened to hear about Ron’s passing. He was a great guy and I was so grateful to have you as neighbors. No more pain and sorrow, now with God and in our hearts. Please know you are in my prayers.
