Lois Platt

My deepest condolences to the family of Ronald Kessler. My son, Chuck, has been a friend of Ronnie since grade school. I have many fond memories of Ronnie & all his friends growing up. In fact, Ronnie & his friends helped me celebrate my 80th birthday, three years ago. He will be missed by all.

Joanne Meyers

Ron was one of my biggest fans. There isn't anything he wouldn't do to support me and my mission. I hope he's been embraced by Shawn and Elyssa. He will be remembered forever by those he knew and touched.

Lisa Friedman Rosauer

Rosie and Ronnieâ??s entire family, I am heartbroken for all of you. If you donâ??t remember me, I am Steve Friedmanâ??s (Frito) little sister. I have known Ronnie since I was a little girl and he was one of the kindest, down to earth, funniest and sincere people I have ever had the honor to have known. He would do anything for those he cared about. I clearly remember so many times with Ronnie and the guys at our house. It is a gift when a group of people stay friends for as long as these men have. Rosie, you were also a gift to Ronnie. He treasured you and the children. Although words can not really help you during this time, please know that I am so sad and wishing so very much that I lived close enough to pay my respects to you and the family.
