Ronald Franklin…thinking of you today…

Ronald Franklin Buttry

March 5, 1938 – February 25, 2009

“Ship off the coast,

of a faraway land,

holds thousands of turtles,

and a pirate who is grand.

He loves all his people,

and he brings them good cheer,

with a parrot on his back, a tune in his ear.

Ron Buttry is his name,

and a dream is what he’s got,

and he will keep on dreaming,

Never to stop.”

This was written by Milagros when she was in middle school for Ron on a Father’s Day, to honor his belief that in a previous life he was a pirate.

Ron, I am sure you are having a grand time in this stage of your journey, and at the same time taking care of your grand-daughter, Alice Riley, the littlest angel in heaven.

May this finds you all well and happy, as Ron used to say.
