|Lord, Bless Ron Regal, the man who meant so much to us.|
"My Darling Ron, Today was 6 yrs. you've been gone, every year is
Harder for me not to have you here. Lori & I went to the cemetery
& brought new flowers for you & Lisa. We talked abt. That good times
With you. It's so sad to realize we will ever be able to do those things
W/you here. Someday we will all be together again. Forever yours ❤️"
"There are no words to say how much I miss you. I think of you every day. Something always reminds me of you, a song, the smell of paint, a movie. The list goes on and on. Your memories are strong and your life lessons. I love you and will always hold you in my heart until I see you again. Xxoo"
"You're always in our thought and prayers. Miss your smile."
"Happy Father's Day dad! I already have shed tears today because I miss you so very much, but not just today but every day. I love when you send me our favorite reggae songs when times get tough to brighten my day. Your memories will live forever in my heart. You were and are a wonderful dad. I love you forever and plan to see you again. "Don't worry about a thing because every little thing will be alright" Xxoo"
"Happy 77th Birthday Dad! The family got together last night at a Chicago pizza restaurant in honor of you! It was a great time-we shared stories and funny comments you used to make! We laughed and smiled. The memories will last a lifetime till we meet again in heaven. We all miss you greatly! The Big guy especially always being around us women! We love you Dad"
"Happy 77th Birthday dad! We got to go out to dinner tonight and we talked about you and laughed as how you would say enough if things got out of hand. We shared how you reached out today, with songs on the radio or pictures that popped up after years on Facebook. Memories we all hold in our hearts. You may be gone, but your memory lives in each of us and in our hearts. I love you and miss you! Hope to dance with you again, red red wine! Catch a fish for me. You made us better people! Love Lori xxoo"
"Happy Birthday, dad. Thank you all for the lessons you taught me. How to be a man, how to be a husband, and how to live a life that loves and honors God. I was so blessed to have you as my father. You are sorely missed here on earth. I look forward to the day that I can see you again in our Father's kingdom.
Love you always,

We will all be together again. Allen and I took a bike ride last night where we spread your asses at your favorite fishing spot-I thought of the Old Man and the Sea story that Kirk read to you. I love you always and forever!"
"I miss you still every day. Tonight I was at a concert and people were dancing and I knew if you were here you would have danced with me. I miss your laugh and your hugs.

"Dad happy 76th birthday! I hope you are celebrating fishing with your pet buddies and family. I miss you every day. I see the fish in the water that are big and wish you were there to fish with me.

"Ron, My Love,
It's almost 2 months since your gone & I think of you all the time. I don't sleep well
Your always on my mind. I go over everything I can remember when you went to the
Hospital for a minor ordeal, but It turned out to be much more than that. I wish we
Could time travel & go back to before this awful thing happened & it took you away
From me. I'm empty & have a Big Hole in my Heart"
"Drove by our favorite getting bait spot. The guy new us so well that he would throw in extra shrimp. I remember you waiting for me to pull up and off we go with reggae music on down to the beach. We did not care what we looked like, fishing hats on and our fishing shirts. We had not a care in the world! You taught me to live, laugh and dance often. Miss you!"
"Yesterday I said goodbye to a friend of ours and I was very sad and wanted to come home and tell someone all about it, but you were not there. I miss being able to express myself and tell my stories to someone who really listens. You stopped whatever you were doing and really looked at me and listened. You would stay on the phone and listen to every detail. I miss my great listener. I miss you!"
"I was on my iPad this morning and ran across the checkers application. It reminded me of all the great times I would have playing checkers with dad. He did not let me win, but taught me how to compete. We played on a old fashion board game and sometimes we sat outside cracker barrel and played. I miss my checker board buddy. I love you dad!"
"Ron, my Love, my husband of 41&1/2 yrs., my partner for life & most of all, my Best
Friend, I will always think of you every morning & miss you every night. I will love you
Til' the day I die. For now, your my Special Angel. XX Forever yours, Caroline OO
Remember our song, Sweet Caroline, we met in the spring & Spring became the
Summer & who do you think would come along. Married July, 5th, 1969"
"I write on this because I feel like I am still speaking to my dad. I go outside to walk my dog and feel the sunlight and the wind blowing and I feel his presence. I feel my dad whispering in my ear to go on. The sadness and loneliness will never go away, but to hold on to the thought of being together again is what helps. He always lent his ear and would always lend a hand. He never judged anyone."
"Ron, you were a wonderful friend that treated me like one of the family. I will cherish the memories of all the good times spent together. You always had a way of making everyone laugh and have a good time. You will truly be missed. Michelle"
"I said goodbye to you today and it tore up my heart, but I will see you again. I will always cherish our special times together. Every time I catch a fish or see a sunset, I will be reminded of you! You were my light in the darkness. I know we will meet again at the rainbow bridge. I love you and will see you again! Dance in heaven and keep smiling down on me! Love you!"
"I'm so glad I had the privilage to know Ron!!! I still think about the "rubber band fights" we had when he visited our work..He was a wonderful person,and he will be greatly missed by us all!! Another Angel in heaven!!"
"Dad every morning I look at your little notes you left me when you would drop off leftovers or walk boo. You would always worry if I had the heat on and food in the house. You always asked me how the little girl boo was and we would compare pet stories. You always cared and made me laugh. You were my rock to go on. I miss you, but will see you again."
"my dad was my best buddy. I loved getting up early on Saturday mornings to fish and then go get our favorite blt sandwiches and look out over the water and just have father and daughter quality time. We always laughed and told each other stories and secrets. He will always be in my heart and soul and it will always feel like a piece is missing. Love you"
"Dad I cant put into words you are my whole world-a huge peice of my heart is missing and will never be replaced, I will miss our Sunday dinners, you always helping to clean up and taking our walks. I love you with all my heart and I can't wait till the day we are together in heaven again. You are the most wonderful dad in the entire world-I always tried to let you know that. Love always & foreve"
"Matthew Paulsen: January 18, 2011
The times I saw Grandpa will always be my most treasured memories. I will always remember Grandpa as a wonderful person and a wonderful grandfather, now and forever.
"I'm going to miss your smile, your infectious laughter, the way you danced across the room without a care. Most of all, I'm going to miss talking to you on the way to work..."you're late!" you'd always start, then we'd both laugh and talk until I pulled into my parking spot. "I'm here"... "Okay, give the girls a kiss" you'd always end. I'm going to miss you so very much, Dad."
