Re: “Farewell, 'Hollywood Ron'

Ron was...how to express it? A brother to everyone who ever met him. A wildly successful entrepreneur. A font of fascinating stories and anecdotes about the rich and famous--or the merely interesting. A joy to be around. An enthusiast for snowboarding, food, and most of all, Savannah. And a man I wish I'd known even better than I did. I last wrote to him via Facebook a few days ago, as I'd lost his email address in switching ISPs. I never heard back, but I knew I'd run into Ron somewhere, and very soon. How wrong I was. I drive a yellow New Beetle, and whenever Ron would see me tooling around while he was giving a movie or other tour, he'd wave like a madman, flash that famous smile, and somehow work me into the tour. "There's Katherine Oxnard, a legendary Savannah movie star in her own right!" I'm not sure how he explained that to his patrons, but it always made me laugh. I am so sad and bereft and confused now, and there will be a hole in my heart as I drive around town looking for that tour van with his photoshopped "Forrest Gump" picture on the back...
