To the Akers and MtCastle families. You have my deepest and heartfelt sympathy in the passing of your husband and father. He was truly a great and unique individual. He would give a person the shirt off of his back and ask for nothing in return except a Thank You. He was a very blessed and kind person. He will missed by all who knew him. Stay strong and continue to believe he will always be there for you no matter what happens. He is now looking over all of you from above as a true angel.

To the Ackers Family, we send our love and support out to each of you in this time of change, a time when family moves on to the other side of the veil and waits for us there. I know that my Grandfather was there waiting with open arms to welcome him home. The time we spend here is nothing more than gaining the knowledge and full truth of the Gospel, to be tried and stand fast in our testimonies of it. I know without a shadow of doubt that Buck knew the truth and spoke of it freely. I enjoyed the times we all spent together in church, camping, or whatever it was we did together, as these will always be the memories stored in our hearts and minds. These are the only things that we can take with us from this mortal life into our spiritual life. I want you all to remember how much we love you all and will do whatever we can to support you through this change in life. Continue on with your chin held high and a beautiful smile on your face and celebrate the life that he chose to live. As this is my prayer for your family, Knowing that our Heavenly Father lives and I leave this with you in the name of his son Jesus Christ, Amen.

Sherri, Mindi, Braden, and Lauren,
I truly am sorry for your loss of a dear husband, beloved father, and treasured grandpa. Knowing Ron was such an honor for me because I could see how proud he was of each of you. Sherri, I treasured each time I got the opportunity to visit with the both of you. Mindy, I fondly remember how you knew your dad could straighten any of us out. Braden, I know you dearly loved him and learned many life lessons that have helped you grow into a fine man. And Lauren, I know you cherished him and his love and concern for you. May God fill your hearts with all the wonderful memories you hold dear of him. My love and prayers to you all.
