I am so sorry that I waited so long to try and locate Ron. I am an old friend—never a romantic interest, just a buddy —from Iowa State. To his children, my heartfelt condolences. I first met Ron on an "exchange" between our two residence hall houses during orientation and we remained friends until I graduated in February. 1972. I helped Ron get through anatomy and human physiology, and he supported me in more ways than I could ever recount. One year I worked in the local movie theater and had a free pass for myself and a friend for unlimited films at any theater in Ames. I did not have a car at the time, so he would drive downtown any time there was a movie we both wanted to see, including iconic films like Woodstock, Two Mules for Sister Sara, and Bullitt, which we sat through at least three times. When my family had an emergency, Ron was the person who volunteered to take me to DesMoines to the airport. Today I just happened to be talking about my years at ISU with a new neighbor from Davenport, and started thinking about Ron, and Googled his name. I will always regret not having done so sooner. I would have liked to thank him for being such a wonderful friend to a kid who went out of state to school and started out not knowing a soul at ISU.
