To the wonderful Selvo family. I am saddened again of the great loss of another family member. It was of great pleasure working at Eastman Gel with Ron and then David. I worked in the boil house and saw Ronnie all the time, he was a straight shooter. i'd swing by the house with son David and Charley Euginio (a.k.a.) the tuna to get the boat come back and tell stories about the big one that got away. we all worked together as one. Ron was a good teacher when i was on a new job he'd give of himself to help me. I miss allot of the guys especially Richie Kulakowski, and Sean McHugh. All ways ready to help every one!! With Great Sympathy for your loss! Henry E Sullivan
