    I am so very sorry to learn of Ron’s passing. Praying God’s comfort and peace for all of you.

  2. Arnie, Lynn and all of the Kaufman family,
    We are saddened to hear of Ron’s passing. I wish our words would somehow comfort you, but in times like these, they fall so short. Having only known Ron through you, we know that he was a joyful and active believer. We rejoice in knowing that he is free from any pain, dementia, or physical limitations anymore. We are in prayer for your family, and especially Arnie’s mom, at this very tough time. We trust that God will give you the comfort you so need as you come together to grieve him tonight and tomorrow.
    Much love and prayers,
    Donna Backus and Steve Johnson, Becca, David, John, Joe, and Leah

    You have our entire family’s heartfelt sympathies in this time. Ron is one of the hardest working, dedicated men I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. It was truly an honor to have been allowed to work side by side with him in the church. His work is done and his well deserved reward for our Lord is now his. He is at peace and one day it will be our joy to celebrate. Mary, Cliff, Cathy and Arnie, my God’s peace be with each of you now and always.
