    So sorry to hear of Ron’s passing. He lived just below me on Grassy of Raccoon. I have known the Looney family for many years. Jewelene was married to my cousin, James. My parents were Carl & Phyllis Adams and we were close friends to all of the Looney girls. Sending prayers to all of the family and I know he will be missed by all. God Bless
