quilt block is dedicated to Ronald Wilson. Ron died of ALS (Lou Gehrig Disease)
on March 20, 2001 at the age of 57. During a 6 1/2 year battle he lost his ability
to walk and talk, and in the last two years he breathed using a bi-pap machine.
Ron and Cheryl were married for 37 years and had two sons. Ron worked at the Farmers
Co-op Shipping Association in Clifton, Kansas for 35 years until ill health forced
him to retire.
Ron was a hospice patient for the last year. Hospice allowed him to stay at home
being cared for by many friends and family members. Ron had a terrific sense of
humor, and always had the determination to live.
