Dearest Tasker Family,
I am so very very sorry to hear about your recent loss in the family. Notice the promise we find in the Bible at Revelation 21:4. It says there "And He will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." Isn't that such a wonderful promise from God. Always remember that God will always be there to comfort you and help you cope through hard times. You all are in my thoughts and prayers.
Sincerely yours,
Madalyn Welsh

To the family of Ron Tasker, may God give you peace and keep you as you always remember you loved one. Ron and I served in the Army together, and he was my best friend. Ron and I went through Basic Training in Fort Knox, Kentucky, Advanced Training in Ft. Polk, Louisiana, and we were in the same platoon all throughout our tour of duty in Viet Nam. Ron was a very strong, brave, and courageous man, and he was also a good soldier. I am sorry to hear of his passing. I have become active in some VA activities and I thought I would look up the one person with whom I was close. I'm glad to see that he has been blessed with a wife and son's. Ron was a good guy, and I will miss him too. Treasure the good memories, and nothing else matters.

God Bless You!
