I was in the Ingles last Friday night when Ronald’s sister, Donnie, whom I had never met before Friday, got the news of her brother’s death. She was so clearly distraught. She asked me to pray for Ronald, and I want to assure her that I have been doing so, for Ronald and his family, and for Donnie herself and all family members.

May God hold all of you in His tender loving care.

I called Ron the ambassador of Green Mountain Road He knew everyone and was always willing to help out. We will miss him ripping around on his ATV.

Mr. Corn was one of the best neighbors I have had the pleasure of knowing. I resided on Poplar Dr. from Aug 2008-Dec 2010. Our first day there, Mr. Corn came riding through our lawn on his scooter to introduce himself and we thought that was rude because we just came from California where a persons lawn is sacred. :O) We soon would get used to this and even grow to love him. He held that neighborhood together with his helping hand. He was always helping even when he thought no one was looking. I know my old neighborhood will never be the same…who will trim trees and burn the pile of branches, scrape the road after a snow storm, till up a garden for neighborhood use, or ride from house to house just to say hi? Mr. Corn, I really appreciated you as a neighbor and know that East and West Poplar just won’t be the same without you.
