(Jan) Many of you may have noticed photos of my brother Ron and Sister-in-Law Scarlett on our Blog as we have been able to meet on the road in different places. They were able to join us in the fall of 2009 at Coarsegold & Yosemite, Thanksgiving 2011 at Mittry Lake, in Pasadena for the 2013 Rose Bowl Parade, in Alaska last June and at Quartzsite last December. There were also wonderful visits at their home in California and to our family’s homes in Iowa. Just one month ago we had a ‘Siblings’ visit at Ron & Scarlett’s. He lived with so much pain but did not let that stop him from enjoying travel & family. Two weeks ago we headed to California for our last visit with Ron. His cancer had taken a bad turn. We were privileged to help Scarlett care for him in his last days at home. He passed away on Thursday April 24, 2014. He was an accomplished mountain biker; he and Scarlett had ridden over 20,000 miles together. He was a good brother, husband and father and will be missed by all who knew him.
