Happy Retirement Ron!

My brother Ron officially retired the last day of April. Deb, Erin, David and I were able to be there with him in Omaha via a video conference and phone conference. We were ab;e to see everything and hear everything, and even talk to Ron. Erin has a web cam so Ron was able to see them too! It was so awesome!

There's Ron and I believe that is his former boss Chuck. Chuck and Ron Hunt made all this possible for us to be there too.

I sent lots of pictures of Ron as a little guy, growing up and some recent ones. Erin sent some recent ones too. They made a power point presentation so we could see it as well on our computer screens. They wrote funny and real text for the pictures. Lots of fun, memories and laughter.

Some of the people that were there to help send him off. It was such a special day and I am still excited to have been able to be there with Ron. His son Ryan was there in person taking lots of video which was really special too. Congratulations Ron on being a retiree!!!

That's great that you took pictures! You summed it up beautifully, Diane. I couldn't have said it better!

Wow! Fun to see what it looked like from your end. It was a fun day and it was great that they took the time and trouble to set up the two way video conference.
