  2. Fellow employees CMH

    To the Saylor Family one of my 1st jobs I worked for Mr. Saylor in Food and Nutrition he was a great Director. Sending prayers of comfort during this difficult time.

  3. Ron fought a courageous battle and I never heard him complain. He was a great guy and such a good husband to Carolyn. Carolyn and I go way back and have been friends for many years. Its no doubt that Ron was Carolyn’s soul mate and the were perfect for each other. We will miss Ron but he is no longer suffering. Love to all of the family. Keeping you close to my heart and in my prayers.

  4. Sincere sympathy

    As I said, Ron sure fought the long and hard fight. So very sorry for your loss. No doubt he is rejoicing in Heaven with his Lord and Savior. You will miss him, but he is free of not being able to breathe and for that we have to be happy for him , but sad for his loved ones left behind. May God go with you each and every day as you struggle with your loss. Love you so much and keeping you in thought and prayer. God be with the Saylor family.Lots of love from our family to yours.
