LOU ANN AND RON

Reminisce - - Our Lives -

Ron El­lick­son’s par­ents and my par­ents helped build each other’s houses east of San Diego. The day I was born, I was two weeks late, so Mom was happy that the time had fi­nally ar­rived. Ron wasn’t due for two more weeks, but his mother said, “I wish I were go­ing, too.” Her wish came true: Ron was born an hour af­ter me that night. Un­til age 23, we were to­gether for every birth­day. Our friend­ship is a pre­cious, en­dur­ing bond.
