Default Very Sad News

So sorry to have to post this bad news. Last evening our very dear friend Ron Unger (Popee) passed away. I know many of you knew him and thought you might like to know.

Our thoughts and prayers go to his wife Ferne and their family. May he rest in Peace.

Although I've never met Ferne and Poppee, I'm so sorry to hear of Poppee's passing. Tweety, I know they are friends of yours and I'm sorry for your loss.

Tweety, so very sorry to hear about Ron passing away. Our prayers and kind thoughts are with Fern and the family. We remember our "Marlin fishing" trip with Ron on the "Cruisemates Hawaii" trip on the Get Leid Cruise II. We did not catch much, but had a great time together!! Sure he will be really missed. John & Priscilla

I'm heartbroken to hear about this. My condolences to Fern and to the rest of their family. I enjoyed meeting and sailing with them.

I'll let Betty know.

All my best,
Mike

I can't tell you how sad I was to get the phone call this morning that Ron had passed away.

I first met Ron online, and shortly after that he and Ferne hopped in their motor home and came all the way to Canada to spend time with strangers (and new friends). We have amazingly warm and wonderful memories of that first get together.

This past Oct. we were just in Vegas with them for the marriage of their son.

It's difficult enough to find great friends, and so VERY painful losing them.
Truly difficult times ahead for Ferne and family.
