Condolence from Vic on January 4th, 2013 12:00 am

Dear Ron and Langley Family,
I found out about your Mother’s passing. I was privilege to have met her when I came home with you on leave. She was a loving person and would like to hug me and feed me. While you were stationed elsewhere, she was so kind and accepting to me when I visited her when I was traveling around the States.
I believe she is with the Lord and all his love.
Take care, my friend, for you are a wonderful person.
