    I was sad to hear of Ron's passing. Everyone at AB-Tech adored Ron and couldn't wait to see him every Friday. He was sweet, enthusiastic and most of all, he was full of joy. I will always remember the radiant smile that shown on Ron's face everytime someone would even mention a Beatles song. From here on, whenever I play "Hey Jude" for my students, I will always think of Ron. Rest in peace Ron. Let it Be When I find myself in times of trouble, mother Mary comes to me, speaking words of wisdom, let it be. And in my hour of darkness she is standing right in front of me, speaking words of wisdom, let it be. Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be. Whisper words of wisdom, let it be. And when the broken hearted people living in the world agree, there will be an answer, let it be. For though they may be parted there is still a chance that they will see, there will be an answer. let it be. Let it be, let it be, ..... And when the night is cloudy, there is still a light, that shines on me, shine until tomorrow, let it be. I wake up to the sound of music, mother Mary comes to me, speaking words of wisdom, let it be. Let it be, let it be, ..... (The Beatles) God Bless, Holly
