I always enjoyed my visits with Cousin “Ronnie”. The last was one of those special trips sometime in the mid 1990’s when he brought Julie to visit me and my dad, his Uncle Lester Larson, in Seattle. We made potato balls (not as good as his mom, Stella’s) and Swedish meatballs and lefsa. We had the best time remembering stories about all the old folks, telling jokes and laughing.
Ron always cared about family and did his best to connect us all together, keep the family history alive, keep laughing, and loving all of us.
Prayer for all that God’s love will comfort our hearts, and we will rejoice knowing Ron is at The Master’s feet rejoicing.
