Sad to report that Ron Smith (BIGHOSS) lost his battle with Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis this afternoon. Prayers for his family. Will provide arrangements when known.

Rest In Peace Ron! It was always a pleasure to talk wit Ron at CubFests.
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.
