in loving memory of Ron Blue, VE1BBB. Please accept my most heartfelt sympathies for your loss. Ron was a wonderful Net Controller for the Amateur Radio morning 2meter Wake Up net. He was always kind and effecient in being a Net Controller. He welcomed people to the Net in the mornings and made us all feel special and that we were heard. Ron was the first person I ever spoke with on the air when I got my radio license. I had the pleasure of meeting him a few times in person, too. He will be greatly missed by us all in the Amateur Radio community. 73 and 88, dear Ron.
