My deepest sympathies to the Gray family. I loved listening to all of Rons stories in the past two years. He was a handful! But , I loved (almost!) all the time we spent together. He absolutely ADORED his family!! He could have spent every minute of every day, watching his grandchildren competing, practicing or just playing! He loved his siblings , and told me MANY stories of the growing up in Pittsburgh and Neville island. He missed his wife Eleanor, very much, and was waiting for the day to see her again. I will miss you Ron!! God bless you, and keep you! Amy, Jeff, Robert, Samantha and Fila❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
