Ron had a great love of life and of adventure. When I met Ron he immediately start telling me stories, many of which almost seemed unbelievable, until I got to know him. I knew they had to be true. I sat and quietly and watched him sleep and he laid there as a quiet child and if you were there when he woke up, he was a very gentle soul. I am convinced his desire for a full life was in intregal part of Ron. His greatest gift to all of us was honesty. He could be caught looking you right in the eyes as if checking into your soul to see if you were pulling his leg. He used to call us his "girls" and he loved us all, I knew it, somewhere along the way he got tough and never let his guard down, when he was sleeping I saw it. He is in a very peaceful place right now and he has shared with all of us the importance of the gift of life, no matter what you were dealt with, just keep going. I know in the Creators hands he has gentle walked. Blessings to you, Ron, I will never forget you. I also sang a travelling song for you by the water on the day you died! baa maa pii my friend baa maa pii

My deepest sympathies the the loved ones of Ron James. While doing my placement under the Erie-St. Clair LIHN, Audrey Logan, I had the pleasure of meeting Ron. He was a pleasure to be around and kept us on our toes. We didn't have to guess how Ron felt about something because he was very honest about his feelings, which I found very refreshing. Ron was always joking and loved to see others smile. He was a joy for me to be around. He always loved his coffee and muffins or apple fritters. I would have liked to pay my respects in person but unfortunately didn't find out until after the service was done. I have no doubt the Creator welcomed Ron with open arms and that his memory will always be carried in the hearts of those who were lucky enough to have Ron touch their lives. I will carry his memory of the time I spent with him in my heart.
