Ron Elrod was special because he totally and completely loved each and every member of the family. Abigail, Caroline, and Peter are his grandchildren. His grandson, Peter, is almost an exact replica of Ron’s expressions, sense of humor, and his happy attitude. What he loved best was being with Peter, Abigail, and Caroline in Beaver Creek every summer and our special trip to Disney World that he requested before he was too sick to go. Kimberly and Meredith, his two daughters, have always been the center of his adult life. Kimberly he loved because of her beautiful relationship with him. Meredith has her dad’s love of math and science and is pursuing her passion in her career. There is absolutely no doubt in anyone’s mind that he loved me, his wife, Ann, truly and deeply. Ron was faithful, loyal, loving, committed, and my best friend. I shall always love him.
