Subject:  Talking with Ron & Jonmark
Message:  Thought I give the Lyons' a called on my way home last night and caught everyone out for a dinner at a local cafe. (Ron says they don't have restaurants in Gold Beach)

I could tell by the tone and energy in his voice that he was enjoying Jonmark's visit and their working together to finish up some personal projects that Ron had been working on before his illness got in the way. I fussed at him a little for not clearing our his e-mail. Like you, everytime I try to just send him a note it comes back to me marked "memory full", or something along that line.

He wanted to know why I still had his name on the list of those who plan to attend the Gathering, and I told him if he would read the post with his name on it, I made the statement that his name would always be on that list as long as I have anything to do with the Gatherings. In person or spirit, Ron Lyons will always be a part of the Gatherings. I believe that he appreciated that.

Jonmark's conversation was cut short by the arrival of their food, but he reported that Ron was in a great frame of mind, looking forward to their working together for the next few days, and that Lana was proof that he wasn't the only guy around here that married over his head.

I just wish I could be a fly on the wall as these two wonderful friends spend this time together.

I'm sure that Jonmark will provide a more detailed report on their visit when time allows.
