Ronald Haggard
April 18, 1977 - April 27, 2000

Like mighty Lake Michigan swirling around the shores of Beaver Island, the seasons flow past us as time relentlessly marches forward.

Winter usually takes a deep breath and lingers, while summer is always over far too soon.

The seasons quickly become a year … and yet another.

April 27th, 2003, marks the third anniversary since Ronald passed away. He was a young man who dearly loved his adventures on Beaver Island. It now seems as though Ron's life flowed past us like the seasons of the year. The passage of time has cauterized our pain, but his absence lingers like a long winter. The happy times are wonderful memories that we hold as lovingly as a bright Beaver Island summer. But summer is over far too soon. Ron, we know that you continue to feel our love, and we certainly feel yours. We remain comforted knowing that you are in the warm embrace of our Savior. –the family of Ronald Haggard
